Situated in a classic building in need of work, many rooms are under repair. The exhibits themselves tell isolated stories, without much of a time series on how and why the Revolution happened. Many exhibits reach for revelance, like a historic lighter or shoe of a hero. Little is in English. The elevator/lift is broken, as are the toilets. Such... More

This building is a must visit in Havana. No where else will you get to see so many historical artifacts from the revolution up close. Its in the beautiful old governors palace. It isn't too expensive to enter, but the exhibits themselves, while affordable are disorganized and most placards are not in English. I came away with a lot of... More

If you want to know about the Revolution, before, during and after, this is the place. Very interesting and informative. You will come away with greater understanding of why the Revolution occurred. Two full floors of information and history.

Interesting equipment and good picture taking. It's outside under a roof so it's out of sun. The boat Granma is very large and inside the glass it's a little hard to see completely.

This was a fabulous museum. I definitely learned much more and earned a greater appreciation for this beautiful country after visiting this museum. I think it was 10 CUC entrance, but definitely worth it.

While it may not be factual, it's interesting to see the Cuban perspective on the revolution. And their country pride is definitely evident walking around here. You don't need to spend a lot of time here, but you should definitely check it out.

If you are one for the romanticized notions of the communist revolution in Cuba be prepared to have your bubble burst. This is a somewhat gory rendition of the "history" of the revolution- including many "artifacts" including blood stained clothing, morgue style photos of dead "patriots" and a bunch of propaganda as to the glory of the revolution and the...

I am not sure what I was expecting at this museum but I am interested in the history of Cuba and the revolution and thought I would spend a couple of enjoyable hours. There is not that much on display that captures the imagination other than some tired photographs and documents and the most interesting part of the visit was... More
