went here as part of a day trip to the sugar cane plantation and cigar making, tasted all the different rums....great time. if you do this trip and like the rum, it is dirt cheap compared to back home so fill your boots.

we visited the house of rum on avisit to havanna, the many types of white and dark rums were amazing, and extremely cheaper than at the airport.

This place is pretty incredible! The staff were both so knowledgeable and helpful. Was afraid that prices might be higher here as it's very tourist-centric...nope. Prices on par with everywhere else. Free taste-testing of any rum you want!

We were lucky enough to have this within an excursion. Samples were readily available and plenty of information on each sample. You can walk into the House Of Rum and buy any bottles you wish. A must visit hick hick.

Nice little liquor shop where you can find a vast variety of alcoholic drinks. I found the prices slightly higher than elsewhere. Having said that it's only 3 CUK difference for a bottle of rum.

This is nicely decorated shop with nice atmosphere, wide selection of rums and official prices (which is always good to have in Cuba)

I do not have children so I can not definitively answer this question, but we did see kids inside playing with the barrels when we were there
