Museo Nacional de la Cerámica Contemporánea (Museum of Contemporary Ceramics) Havana 2020

                   There was a time when a visit to the Ceramic museum was free, that has changed. Although admission is not expensive, a couple of CUC, it still shows you that times are changing in Havana. Upon entering you'll find a number of objects that are for sale for what I consider a reasonable price for what you're getting. However, going beyond that shop will cost you. It's still well worth it in my opinion, a fair bit to see that will keep you occupied for some time. There are many ceramic objects on display from famous Cuban artists spanning several decades. Some of the most famous artists, dead and alive, have their artwork on display here. A must visit for anyone who is even remotely interested in Art. I strongly recommend coming here.
                  The space the museum occupies was once the Casa de Francisco Aguilera Basabe, originally owned by merchants that once resided along this ancient road. The house was constructed in 1728.
