One of the first places on your list of galleries to visit in Havana should be the National Museum of Fine Arts or its Spanish name, la Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (Museum of Fine Arts) . It is located at Calle Trocadero, e/Av. De la Belgica (Misiones/Egido/Monserrate) y Calle Agramonte (Zelueta), Centro. Beyond this, you should also visit many of the other art galleries in Havana which you can discover on an organized tour of the city. After a tour of the National Museum of Fine Arts, walk through the streets of old Havana and discover on your own, small art galleries and the workshops of the artists themselves. It is possible and wonderful. Stumbling upon a small gallery not listed in a tourists’ guide to Havana or finding an artist’s workshop and meeting the artists by chance on your own should be listed as one of the true delights of Havana.
