American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora Reviews
I first visited the Museum a couple of years ago, after it had just opened and it had an excellent exhibition on Cuban art and artists. On show at the moment is a 'must see' exhibition on the life, mu... more »
The décor is a study in stark and white, the building is not large but it shows strong. The current exhibit is " Forever Celia". more »
I came to this museum to see the Celia Cruz exhibition ‘Forever Celia’. It’s a small place and the Celia stuff takes everything they have. However, I found everything great. Very well arranged. Kudos to the executor for the care of detail and all the information he could gather. You can spend hours listening to every audio/video file, reading or just being amazed with all the things that belonged to that great woman. There’s a small room with an exhibit from a photographer that worked with Celia for several years and the quotes are very moving. I you loved the music and life of Celia Cruz, this is a must see. Everything else on this museum was very neat but I found disappointing that I had to run to an ATM because they only took cash for the admission. Also, I thought that this museum was included in the ‘Museums on Us’ from Bank of America but the receptionist told us otherwise.
Just called the museum after 3 weeks since the Celia Cruz documentary was not playing due to technical issues, today they tell me that there are no videos playing. The person who answered the phone was extremely rude and sarcastic and totally unprofessional! I hate to give it this rating because it is truly an excellent exhibition but the staff is the exact opposite and should be ashamed to be representing such a legacy
