Cuba: A New Classic Car Museum in Old Havana

Walking down San Ignacio Street in Old Havana last Saturday, I came across a car museum, which has only been open for the past eight months.

There, I could appreciate the history of Cuba’s automobile industry from the very first Ford model T manufactured in 1914, to a jet ski made today.


However, the thing that really caught my attention was a special room where there was a car donated to the museum by Eusebio Leal, the City Historian. This had in turn been a gift to our historian from a wealthy US citizen. It’s a 1949 DeSoto, a real gem of engineering and design, with 0 km on the odometer.


I recommend you take a trip back in time to when classic cars first arrived in Havana.
