Museo Emilio Bacardí

The Museo Provincial Emilio Bacardí Moreau is located in the historical centre of Santiago de Cuba. It stands out due to its eclectic façade decorated with neo-classical elements and designed by the architect Carlos Segrera.

The museum is a public institution founded by Emilio Bacardí Moreau on the 12th February 1899. The museum was located in several different buildings (including the house of its founder) before it was inaugurated in its present headquarters with the backing of Bacardí’s widow Elvira Cape Lombard. The museum bears the name of its prestigious intellectual and founder and its establishment heralded one of the most important socio-cultural events in the city.

The museum has been directed by local artists and intellectuals such as José Bofill Cayol, Fernando Boytel Jambú and Antonio Ferrer Cabello. Its aim is to care for, conserve and enrich its collections for the enjoyment of present and future generations so that they may learn about history and their ancestors and look upon them with gratitude and love.
