For all truly interested in history a brisk walk through this museum is important. If the displays were edited in half would be much better considering the amount of time it takes to carefully read all the labels on important things like Ché's boots. The...More

Visited this museum while in Havana recently and was not too impressed at all. It is housed in the former presidential palace which is a nice building but that’s the only positive thing I can say. It’s not like any other museum I’ve ever been...More

Intresting place to learn about revolution. It would be easier if there would be more information written in english. They will ask you to leave bags and rucksacks in the lockers. So of you want to use toilet take toiler paper with you.

What an amazing collection. A must see to understand the history of Cuba. Makes you understand why the gorgeous Cuban people are so proud of their beautiful county.

Unfortunately information is clearly presented but while under renovation some rooms are closed and information is not in chronological order which makes it difficult. Must climb stairs for three stories. $8cuc entrance fee.

They charge high but limit you on what you carry in , what you watch - the attitude is " we do not care if you visit here or not" so we left and gave up the "pleasure"

Just propaganda on a low cost museum, but the ticket it’s super expensive. It’s only interesting for communist and locals. Don’t lose your time.

All information posted is in English and Spanish. It is a great way to test your Spanish skills and learn about Cuban history from the Cuban perspective.

5 CUC - try to get a guide if one is available (there might be a small charge - like another 3 CUC for the entire group if more than one). You get a bit more history that you might otherwise not know. I have done the tour... More
