This interesting building, which is the former Palace of the Captains General, was built in 1770, making it one of the prime exponents of Cuban Baroque. Between 1899 and 1902 U.S. commanders had their residence here, and afterward it became the presidential palace for a time. It features furniture and other artifacts from the 19th century that depict some of the most important moments in Havana's history. You can find cars, military uniforms, sculptures such as the Giraldilla, the first statue cast in the city, and even a throne that back in its day awaited the visit of the Spanish monarch. You'll find this and much more in its 40 exhibition halls.
