I recalled reading this somewhere when I was on the top floor a little confused. Go to the top floor and turn left, then the excellent displays will be in chronological order Don't expect air con, but they have windows open and clean toilets

An interesting place to visit, but a little bit disorderly to find your way around as no clear route. Some interesting things on display, but only a few things are in English translation as well as Spanish, so more difficult to understand if you don't read Spanish

The museum is housed in a beautiful building. It's not air conditioned and was hot. Not much of interest here unless you are a keen scholar of the revolution and it's icons Che and Chavez.

Although you may believe in their kind of government or not, its a must so that you can understand where they are coming from. To get a more modern opinion of what Cuba... More

Recommended by lonely planet if you have only got two days here. The building is beautiful outside, inside is designed by Tiffany New York but I did not feel that. As I am not familiar with the history of the revolution, half of the pictures they showed in the museum do not mean anything to me. The wall with the... More

This was a place that answered many questions of the history of Cuba. There is a lot of reading and pictures to see. Be sure to get there early because the museum closes at 4pm.

Spend a little time reading up on Cuban history before going here and it is an eye opening experience. The facts are pretty much agreed on - but the inspiration and outcomes? Worthwhile stop during a visit to Havana.

The exhibits were a little sparse but the building itself is full of history and beautiful. A good rainy-day visit
