Fodor's Expert Review Museo Municipal Adela Azcuy

Valle de Viñales Museum/Gallery

In a rather shabby building, this small, eclectic collection displays odd objects and photographs that focus on local history, including antique farm tools. You'll see some stirrups, weapons, weights, locks and keys, and branding irons from Spanish colonial times, as well as personal objects that belonged to the museum's namesake, a top-ranked woman warrior who fought for Cuba's independence in the 19th century. A bronze bust of Captain Adela Azcuy herself stands on the street in front of this house, where she spent much of her life. The museum organizes two- to three-hour guided walking tours in the town of Viñales, CUC$8 per person. Make reservations for the tour the day before at the museum.
