I was prepared to dislike this miniature display of Havana, but left oddly impressed. The realistic scale model of the city takes up almost 144sq. m (1,550 sq. ft.). You can walk around it on the ground level, or climb a narrow interior balcony that rings three walls here. There's usually some traveling art exhibition on the walls surrounding the model. A guide can be hired for CUC$5 to CUC$10. This is not to be confused with a similar (and much smaller) scale model of Old Havana, found in Old Havana, of course.
