This immersive exhibition—fully bilingual in English and Spanish—presents the surprising and extraordinary sights, sounds, and experiences of Cuba.

Its complex politics and vibrant culture have attracted the attention of the world. But Cuba, the largest island nation in the Caribbean, is also home to the unexpected. It’s a place of stunning contrasts: mysterious caves and bright boulevards, sweltering fields and cool forests, hard challenges and high energy. 

Meet its people, explore its landscapes, encounter its unique species, and come away with new perspectives on this intriguing country.


A colorful open boulevard, evoking an urban street in Cuba, acts as a central hub for the exhibition, connecting a series of galleries that each present a unique topic. Spectacular dioramas, lifelike models, fossil casts, digital interactive displays, and hands-on games showcase some of Cuba's most extraordinary highlights.
