The museum was incredible, beautiful artwork and historical exhibits. I was truly inspired to do further reading and research about the Cuban revolution. My only complaint would be the bathrooms had no toilet paper and no seats on the toilets.

So, not the best laid-out museum and it probably helps if you can grasp some Spanish, but there are some exhibits translated into English. Particularly interesting is the contrast of the Cuban view of events like the Bay of Pigs compared to the US/UK view...More

A good opportunity to learn about the island's history from the Cuban perspective. A guided tour is best unless you are fluent in Spanish. It is best to allocate at least 1.5 to 2 hours to the museum visit. The museum building itself and its...More

I think this is a must-do in Havana but we really didn't need a lot of time. First of all, it is hot! No fans at all or any air circulation. Employees were going into the closet and grabbing hand fans. The exhibit was not...More

We loved our visit here as it provided a great summary of the events of the Revolution - some we knew and much we didnt. Well worth the visit - even in the heat

The museum is in the home of the deposed corrupt leader Batista. It's primitive - mostly made up of photos and pieces of clothing and equipment from the revolution. The style is very Cuban (sparse, simple) but it tells an amazing story. You can agree,...More
