The  Havana Club Rum Museum, a way to get to know the secrets of an authentic Cuban tradition.

The Havana Club Rum Museum provides visitors the opportunity to experience the process of developing the ron of first hand, as well as a vision of the origins of the most popular distilled of Cuba.

The  Havana Club Rum Museum offers visitors a chance to experience the rum-making process first hand, as well as an insight into the origins of Cuba’s most popular spirit.

A visit to the Havana Club Museum of Rum is not just a journey back to the origins of Cuba's most famous beverage.

Located in the Historic Center of Habana Vieja ("Old Havana"), the museum is housed in a renovated 18th-century house.

Downstairs is a shady patio, with its broad stone columns and ferns, yuccas and potted palms. A bell signals the start of the museum tour, and you follow the guide up a flight of stone steps.

The first landing presents a view of the cooper shop, demonstrating the craftsmanship required to build and prepare the oak casks inside which the fine rums will age.

An upstairs gallery features an authentic mule-driven cane mill used in the earliest "ingenios" (sugar refineries). A historically accurate model of a steam locomotive reminds us that Cuba was the first country in Latin America to use a railway for the transport of sugar cane.

When you've finished visiting the museum, you'll want to head to the Havana Club Bar, which adjoins the museum. The bartenders here perpetuate the grand tradition of the Cuban "cantineros", with their special know-how in the art of mixing cocktails and taking care of their customers.
