An exhibition of classic cars can be enjoyed in this singular place, including the Cadillac used by Ernesto Che Guevara. The Automobile Depot is divided in two exposition rooms, which share the entire collection composed by 30 promenade cars, two rigid trucks, a funeral carriage, a special vehicle, seven motorcycles, a semaphore, three fuel pumps and two didactic imitations.
The oldest vehicle in the collection dates from 1905, and the latest one comes from 1989. Most of them are North American, although some cars were made in Italy, Spain, Germany and Great Britain. Pieces of the collection can be remarkable for several reasons: pieces valuable due to its technological importance (Cadillac V16 1930), because of its importance in the history of automobile (Ford T 1918), due to its peculiarity (Baby Lincoln 1930) or because it belonged or were used by a relevant personality of culture or politics (FIAT 1930, property of Flor Loynaz; Oldsmobile 1959, used by Commander Camilo Cienfuegos).

Automovil Museum 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.

Built for a warehouse in, 1891 in, neoclassical style. The Office of the Historian decided to exhibit a collection, of old cars here. The most attractive pieces are the classics in the history of the automobile, the oldest ones, or a modal linked to a certain personality. It is a place close to all, unique in the city.
