Founded on July 24, 1964, this institution exhibits objects that belonged to the Cuban bourgeoisie, which collected important works of universal art, as well as Cuban pieces, preserved thanks to the social policy of the Revolution, explained the director of this institution, Yosvanis Fornaris. .
According to Fornaris, at first only the original collections of the house turned into a museum were exhibited, and later other collections through donations, purchases or deposits were included.
Over the years, this building has carried out temporary and permanent exhibitions, teaching programs and communication management projects. It also promotes links with creators, offers guided tours and boosts the relationship with the community.
“This anniversary is a special tribute to those people who have dedicated and still dedicate their lives to such an indispensable institution for Cuban culture and heritage and the education of future professionals and its noble work in the community where it is located”, Fornaris said.
To celebrate this anniversary, the museum invites you to contemplate the pottery pieces from the Talavera de la Reine et Cuba exhibition, made up of a selection of tools and decorations, which evoke the golden years of a popular expression of the 15th and 16th centuries with the adaptation of the pottery workshops to the innovative techniques of the Spanish Baroque and the Renaissance.
