The Museum of the City of Havana is worth visiting simply for the beautiful building its located in. It was the Governor's Palace before the Revolution. Its elegantly furnished with antiques and works of art. Honestly speaking I found it to be lacking historical city information. The staff for the most part seemed bored and unwilling/unable to provide any information.... 更多
Some reviewers suggest that they would have learned more with one of the guides - well, they obviously didn't see the guide that tried to attach herself to me. She barely spoke english, wasn't very helpful, and they seem to earn their extra fee by being able to let you past the rope barrier to access a few extra rooms.... 更多
Had a brief opportunity to visit the museum during a Havana tour. The building is stunning and the exhibits look interesting but I don't speak or read Spanish so the descriptions were incomprehensible to me. I would suggest engaging a tour guide to get more out of your visit.
We made a fundamental error when visiting this museum by paying just the minimum amount (2 CUCs each) for museum entry. If we had been a little less thrifty with our CUCs, for the outlay of just a few more we could have had the services of a guide or at least use of an audio-guide in English. I think... 更多

Good thing, as the descriptions in the museum are only in Spanish. What was disappointing though is the fact that we weren't told... 更多
This museum is situated in the Plaza de Armas in old Havana. The square that sells the books. If you do the city tour your guide will point it out. It's worth taking a look for the building alone. Each room has a steward and they will go out of their way to explain the artifacts and paintings ect. It... 更多
Tip: Do pay extra for the audio tour if you do not have a tour guide. They give you a hand held device where you enter the numbers corresponding in each room to hear about the exhibits. Amazing colonial structure with lots to see. Very nicely restored and well maintained.
This museum has some wonder items from Havana's. The city must of been very wealthy in its day ( well some of the people). The museum is small, but worth a look around, but the staff of want to take for photo's, for money, but they don't pester you.
