Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center#8 in Best Things To Do in Miami
Coalescing the stories of Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, the Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center serves as a stalwart for traditional Cuban culture. The museum houses pre-revolution Cuban art, from 1800 to the 1960s, as well as modern Cuban artists. As a performing arts center, the Cubaocho showcases Cuban music and dance. What's more, the Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center doubles as a store, as many of the items you see in the museum are for sale.
Past travelers suggested stopping by the attraction for a drink (they offer mojitos to go) and maybe a cigar. In the evening, live music serenades visitors while they dance or take in the curated Cuban art, which recent visitors raved about. Many of the Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center's recent travelers stopped by on a walking tour of Little Havana, but Cubaocho warrants a visit in and of itself.
The Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center boasts a position in the heart of Little Havana on the historic Calle Ocho. The Nos. 8 and 207 bus routes take travelers the 2 miles between downtown Miami and the attraction. Entrance to the Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center is free. The museum, which is free to visit, is open daily from 11 a.m. with different closing hours, except for Mondays, when it is closed. Call the museum for details. Visit the official website for more information.
