Rum 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.

Situated within the Fundacion Havana Club, the Museo del Ron celebrates the country's rich rum-making heritage. Guided tours are available in English and other languages, and allow visitors to gain an insight into the antique equipment on display, which was once used to transform raw sugar cane into fine San Cristóbal de La Habana Rum. Learn how the barrels were made, how slaves were used, and how Cuba soon became an important exporter of rum. An onsite restaurant, bar and gift shop add to the attractions, although for many, it is the actual tasting of the rum that is the main highlight.
“"Rum for improvment" ”
It's a fairly interesting museum, but there are definitely ways to spice up the exhibition a little more.
Only a small museum with a guided tour and only took around 30 mins. Had more fun in the bar before the tour to be honest, band was great. Not very informative in my opinion.
“Only for 7year Ron. ”
For sure if you are interested in Ron history, this place is worse Your visit. Nevertheless I believe it could be done in more attractive and interesting way then just going through and trying to hear what guide say. Quite fast and haotic. End of visit you get to taste 7 year Rum. Price for small rum here is higher... More
“Expensive for what it is ”
This isn't as much of a museum,but more a short guided tour of a few bits of rum memorabilia,with an informative guide,and a shot of 7 year old at the end. At no point do they mention any other brand other than havana club, so you don't hear the story of bacardi,and how and why they became santiago (widely regarded... More
“If you want learn more how rum is produced. ”
Accompanied by a guide, you can learn the history of Havana Club rum and how it is produced. The tools used in the past, distillery and aging barrels are displayed in the museum. On a scaled model you can monitor the whole process of rum production. At the end of the visit rum is served, you can follow a lesson... More
“worth a visit if you're nearby ”
This place is worth a visit if you're nearby but I wouldn't go out of your way to go - there are certainly better attractions & places to visit in the city if you're having a short stay. Luckily we got there ten minutes before an english speaking tour was due to begin & we accompanied 5 other people so... More
“Just to kill some time and escape heat with cool mojito ”
We were not interested in a tour so we just had a look around the shop. Cheap enough Havana club rum but we don't like rum so we didn't buy. We don't smoke so we didn't get any cigars. We looked around the bar but could not buy a drink there as that bar was only for tour groups so... More
“I was the Engine Driver! ”
A trip to the Rum Museum?. But of course, when in Rome, or should that be Habana? A slight backlog as an Italian group snuck in first on the tour, actually worked to our advantage as we were able to enjoy a potent cocktail made from 7 year old Rum. 1100 in the morning and perhaps too early for some?... More
“Good times if you like rum ”
Went there as I love rum so was curious to learn more about Havana Club. Tickets are cheap they were about 7 Cuban pesos and for that you get few glasses of rum. You can't go around on your own , you need to join one of the tour guides. We missed the last English tour so did it in... More
“Great museum ”
This is one of the best museums in Havana. The displays are excellent and the tour in English was very good indeed. There is a fantastic scale model of a town with shops, homes, rum factory and a working railway! At the end of the tour you get a glass of rum and a chance to buy more. Well worth... More
