Curious About Cuba: The Great Museums of Havana

Categories: Arts and Culture, History
56min | 2008
Despite Cuba's overwhelming economic and political challenges, museums in Havana abound, from rum and revolution to cars and cigars. In fact, Old Havana itself is a museum-quality collection of historic buildings, reflecting 400 years of Spanish rule and a hundred years of revolution. Outside the museum walls are stunning public works projects focusing on cultural preservation and the restoration of Old Havana City's ancient public streets, squares, and majestic architectural structures. This living history is now being meticulously restored and transformed into apartments, schools, cafes and markets for its citizens.

82% of the Cuban people were already readers back when Fidel and the "rebels" took over, according to the UNESCO... the people who talk in this film are all owned by the gov't ... one way or the other. It is a sham and a shame!

This app work sometimes on the iPad. It would be nice if it works all the times, because it is a great app.

Beautiful...makes my heart yearn to see Cuba; also makes me extraordinarily ashamed of how the U.S. has demonized Castro...makes me sick and sad.
