  • Havana is endowed with some wonderful museums and galleries – this one is for the connoisseur of Cuban revolutionary politics, and offers interesting insights into the art of political propaganda...  more »
  • We found out lots more than we originally understood of the revolutionary period, the museum building itself is lovely if needing some tlc. Makes for a worthwhile escape from the busy old town...  more »
  • The building is amazing and once the restoration works will be completed, it will be lovely. However, the museum exhibits leave a lot to be desired. Better curation is required in order to present better the Cuban revolution and it's people. Visitors should also be allowed inside to see the granma or else make a higher platform to see the yacht better and ensure glass panes are clean.
  • Wonderful place to have some insight into the Cuban freedom struggle and to appreciate hardships faced and commitment & leadership shown by the leaders. My only concern was that they don't take card payments even though it was written cards accepted but don't let that deter you from visiting. Must visit place in Havana.
