El Capitolio, or National Capitol Building in Havana, Cuba, was the seat of government in Cuba until after the Cuban Revolution in 1959, and is now home to the Cuban Academy of Sciences.

Its design is reminiscent of the White House in Washington. It is currently closed for restoration.
It was closed for two years before the scaffolding went up and it is expected to take about 5 years to restore to its former glory!

You can read more about the history and restoration here:
