The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Museum of Fine Arts) in Havana is a must-see for art enthusiasts. The renovated Palacio del Centro Asturiano, constructed by Manuel Bustos in the 1920s, features European masterworks as well as a collection of over 600 works of ancient art from the Egyptian to Roman eras.
The Rationalist-style Palacio de Bellas Artes edifice, which dates from 1959, is dedicated to Cuban art from the 17th century to the present. An outstanding collection of paintings, prints, and sculptures may be found here. The remarkable marble sculpture “Form, Space, and Light” at the museum entry is one of the attractions.
