• The Municipal Museum of history in Varadero

    Antiguas pinturas indígenas

    As almost everything that has to do with tourism in the tourist village of Cuba, the Municipal Museum of history in Varadero is relatively recent, since it has barely three decades old.

    Opened in 1981, allows us to look at some important details. Not only of the history of the Cuban city, also of the paths by which the past of the island spent.

    The Municipal Museum of history of Varadero is installed in a building from the beginning of the 20th century. Its construction took place from 1919, following the style of the great houses in the old colonial plantations of Cuba.

    The two-storey wooden level transports us to other times and, inside the Museum itself, you will find the furniture of the time; the first cartographic samples of the 16th century, that teach us the original Peninsula of Hicacos; official documents; reproductions of indigenous petroglyphs found in caves in the region…

    But if there is something that excites those who have the privilege of walking by the beautiful windows of the big house, is the stunning seascape which opens the mansion. Located on a beautiful sandy dune, the panoramic view over the beach of Varadero is breathtaking.

    Beautiful, caribbean, light and an image of a postcard. In this unique image of the shore of Varadero, the waves of the sea Caribbean caress the beach and invite you to swim, to relax, to take photos… and a Cuban mojito.
