Emilio Bacardi Museum

Things To Do Near Santiago de Cuba

This was one of Cuba's very first museums, set up by Emilio Bacardi, and built by architect Carlos Segrera. Housed within the museum is a valuable collection covering the period between the Spanish conquest and the Wars of Independence (from Spain). On the great entrance doorway there are some wonderful images of the goddess Minerva; while inside there is a large collection of weapons and mambi artifacts (pertaining to African rebel slaves). There is also a good exhibit.
