House of Africa
Destination: Havana
House of Africa - Address: Obrapia street No. 157 e/ Mercaderes y San Ignacio La Habana Vieja. Ciudad de La Habana

The House of Africa was founded in 1986 in a colonial palace in Old Havana to showcase the history and culture of Africa.

There are valuable collections from 27 African countries, based on the collection of researcher Fernando Ortiz, who first used the term Afro-Cuban, and also presents made to President Fidel Castro by heads of state and other personalities of Africa.

The institution does research on the countries represented in its collections, especially those that had a direct influence on Cuba' culture. The Africa House Museum is an important study center and a place where researchers, ethnologists, linguists and students of African and Afro-Cuban history can present their findings.
