Museo de las Parrandas Remedianas information
Visiting this lively museum (and you don't often hear those two words together in provincial Cuba) two blocks off Parque Martí is probably a poor substitute for partying here on December 24, but what the hell? The downstairs photo gallery usually recaps the previous year's parrandas , while the upstairs rooms outline the history of this tradition, including scale models of floats and depictions of how the fireworks are made.
Another room is jammed with revelry gear from celebrations past.
