Building is old and somewhat maintained. Their exhibit of pre-Columbian artifacts was nicely done, but then they skipped to the 17th century. I felt we missed over 1000 years of Cuban history. Lots of 17th and 18th century arms, furniture and artifacts. I didn't think there was enough art either.

This is a large, one story building with a roofed colonnade and open sidewalk on its facade bordering on Mártires Avenue just 2 blocks past the railroad station at the very end of República St, where it open up into the wide Mártires Blvd. This where I saw my first moose, cougar, bear, giant leatherback turtle and the wonder of...

An Oasis in time with cool galleries to wander through. Gives a very good indication of Cuba's rich past. Very well worth a visit with staff who want to help you to understand the glory of Cuba that was. Fantastic displays of older Cuban Furniture and other artifacts. Probably one of the coolest places to visit on a sweltering day!

We are distant relatives of Ignacio Agramonte so we were given a private tour of the patio. The museum was supposed to open on his anniversary, Dec.23 but the work was nowhere finished. Once all is done, it will be a beautiful museum. There are the original tinajones in the courtyard to collect the rainwater from the roof.

We were privileged to hear the local Acapella choir sing in this establishment. Their voices were angelic and the group will be competing in the USA in 2016

We spent more than 2 hours visiting this gem of a museum. It is very big and it has almost everything that one would like to find about the city and Cuba as a whole. The staff was very helpful and was not in your face waiting for a tip. Beautiful grounds and a nice collection of paintings.

This is an interesting museum with a range of furniture, porcelain and art ranging from the early 19th century through to some modern art by Victor Garcia.

This museum is housed in a former military headquarters well north of the centre of the historic area, a bit out of the way – probably why we were the only visitors for the 45 minutes we were there. Although it is a large complex, there are a limited number of exhibitions and no signage – one area serves as... More

This is one of the best museums in Cuba. The front facade belies the style of the interior. Surrounding a large courtyard/garden are rooms full of items from old mansions, classical art, and a modest natural history section. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Camaguey.
