National Museum of Music is located in Havana

Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.

The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.

The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.

Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.

Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

Review about Museums: National Museum of Music
Excellent Mo

Cuban musical instruments
This museum exhibits typical Cuban musical instruments, some of which date back to the early nineteenth century, including Afro-Cuban musical traditions and rhythms. There is also a large collection of traditional and modern instruments from both Cuba and elsewhere, including woodwind, horn, string and percussion instruments. Among the latter are tribal drums used in religious ceremonies.

Very good Gaby

National Museum of Music
Built in 1905 for merchant Francisco Pons, the house became the residence of me Pérez de la Riva family up to 1936. In that year it was acquired by the Cuban government to install the Secretary of State. In 1981 it was restored to settle down the Music National Museum. Its collections store folk instruments, scores of fundamental pieces of our country, music machines, etc. The facade is of stalls, imitating the Italian Renaissance. Their interiors were eclectic in styles, but maintaining the sobriety and the elegance characteristic of one of the best Havana residences in principles of the 20th century. It portraits the historical development of the Cuban music and its instruments from the 16th to 20th century. History of the Cuban and international music. Musical instruments. Works of art. Scores.
