  • Wonderful place to have some insight into the Cuban freedom struggle and to appreciate hardships faced and commitment & leadership shown by the leaders.

  • The museum of all Cuban revolution history. It used to be the Presidential House for most Cuban Presidents. You can move back to the 1950's and read the most significant parts of Cuba's revolution history. I would say it's a bit overpriced regarding the exhibitions, but worth a visit.
