Located in the Punta de Esteban Top, at the Northeastern of Baracoa, the museum is known as de Matachín Fort Museum. The name of the center comes from the 19th century, since in the age two daily farm animals were killed to feed the Spanish Army.

This imposing military construction with a rectangular roof was part of the defensive system of Baracoa between the 18th and 19th centuries, protecting the beaches and the Miel cove.

The building, established as museum in 1981, exhibits archaeological collections from aboriginal times and about the history of Villa de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción. There are seven rooms: Archaeology, Corsairs and pirates, Conquest and Colonialism: Baroque presence in Baracoa; War of Independence; Pseudo-Republic and Revolution, and “El Polvorín.”
