The Museo Casa Natal de José Martí (Birthplace Museum) is the house in which José Martí was born, a 19th century politician and intellectual national hero of the Republic of Cuba.

This humble two-floor house was converted into a museum in 1925 and declared a National Monument in 1949. Its interior houses the largest collection of objects belonging to José Martí that are still being conserved today.


It was built at the beginning of the 19th century, rather close to the city walls, and has typical features of many houses in the area: a tiled roof and mortar walls.

It was the journalist Arturo Carricarte who, together with a small group of Cubans, sparked a public outcry to gather, preserve and classify several objects and documents that belonged to José Martí.

From its foundation until the success of the Revolution it survived without any official support. Nowadays it is part of the Old Havana Historian’s Office.

The house was restored and its collection enriched in a community process in 1959.

Its interior houses 7 rooms where the life of José Martí is recounted; from room 1, where items from his childhood, adolescence and youth are exhibited, all the way to room 7, which deals with his activity in Montecristi, but also with his departure and voyage from Cabo Haitiano to Cuba, passing through the rooms dedicated to his deportation to Spain, his stay in Havana and the US, or his work as the PRC Delegate.

It is interesting to know that this museum contains the only known Oil Portrait of José Martí.
