Fundación Naturaleza y El Hombre

Museum in Playa & Marianao

This tiny museum seems to confirm the old adage that 'small is beautiful,' displaying artifacts from a 17,422km canoe trip from the Amazon source to the sea, led by Cuban intellectual and anthropologist António Núñez Jiménez in 1987. Exhibits in this astounding array of items include one of Cuba's largest photography collections, books written by the prolific Núñez Jiménez, his beloved canoe, and a famous portrait of Fidel by Ecuadorian painter Oswaldo Guayasamín.

The museum is part of a nonprofit foundation and one of Havana's most rewarding.
