We're planning a trip to Cuba and wonder, is it possible for individuals to visit the Alfred de Schulthess House in Havana? I've searched the internets and haven't been able to find any info about visiting. We used to live in a Neutra building, part of the UCLA Co-op. Any tips would be much appreciated!
