Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes - Arte Universal

Museum in Centro Habana

Since 2001, Havana's international art collection displaying art from 500 BC to the present day has been exhibited on three separate floors of the Palacio de los Asturianos. Its undisputed highlight is its Spanish collection, with some canvases by Zurburĭán, Murillo, de Ribera and a tiny Velázquez. Also worth perusing are the 2000-year-old Roman mosaics, Greek pots from the 5th century BC and a suitably refined Gainsborough canvas (in the British room).
