The Cuban revolution was one of the most important parts of the country’s history and it has been beautifully honoured in this lovely museum. If you want to know more about the country you are holidaying in, do visit this place in Havana.

The museum is located in Old Havana so there are a lot of fascinating sights to see around it as well. The building that the museum is housed in is the former Presidential Palace. Today it stands as a symbol of the revolution against that exact presidential rule.

Several artefacts from the revolution including Fidel Castro’s own guns and a few other objects from the pre revolution era like President Fulgencio Batista’s gold telephone which illustrates the opulent rule of his time can all be found in this amazing museum.

  • Amazing history and architecture. The self guided tour takes you through many beautifully preserved and restored rooms throughout the palace. Make sure to look up at the ceilings in the grand hall and the ballroom. The out side exhibits of ware planes and the engine from the U2 are impressive. A must see when you are there, and take the time to take it all in.

  • The building itself is beautiful. Great architecture. Like many other places, it's undergoing restoration, but it does not take away from the experience. Full of incredible historic photos and artifacts. Interesting to hear about the revolution from the Cuban persepective. Well worth the 8 CUC entrance fee.

  • The museum is interesting only if you have a guide explaining the history behind the items. The organization is actually pretty bad, you don't know where it starts and where it ends and there is not much explanation besides the short captions under the items. I felt a storyline was lacking. The outside part is interesting (again, with a guide) as you can see vehicles, boats and airplanes used during the revolution. The entrance costs 8 cuc and you can add a guide for 2 cuc.

  • The building was lovely, albeit under renovations. The museum itself contained many artefacts and a lot of information, however it was completely one-sided and contained much information that is not backed up by any evidence whatsoever. It is difficult to find the beginning of the museum because although it has a sign pointing to the beginning, the first display (pictured below) seems to start in the middle of an invisible paragraph. No back story to the revolution is provided. You really need to do your own research before you go to the museum outherwise you'll be confused until you leave the country and can get Internet to fact check!

  • This museum made me sad. It's a shame that Cubans still today are suffering from bad management and a culture derived from the fact that there is no use doing better work, as it will not result in any gain for those working. Like everything else in Cuba, this museum is expensive and of poor, or no, quality. The exhibitions look like they were made in the seventies, and have not been updated since 1989, as this is where history ends according to this museum. I regret not saving the money and buying a book instead, then I could have learnt something new.
