Museo De La Revolucion - Review
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.

Museo De La Revolucion, Havana Reviews
One of the more important museums/historic sites to visit if you're in Havana as a tourist. The Revolution, as you'll see, is absolutely everywhere as you walk about the city. Understanding/learning about the Revolution is critical to get a solid understanding of the country of Cuba and give better insight into what's taught in the eyes of Cubans.
Beautiful restored building. It is so cool that you can still see old bullets on the wall. I love how their story is so different from what’s understood in the states. Highly recommend to study Cuban / Che history before going there. It can be quite hot inside...
Love how they tell their story from their point of view. However, there are not many things to see in this museum. Not much art, not many artifacts, some pictures and some military things you can see from outside. If I could do it again I'd spend that 8CUC on something else. This is a, "can skip" for me.
Have to go there just to say Viva La freakin Revolucion but as museums go it's not the best. The exhibits where done a while ago and don't seem to have been refurbed in a while. It is very cool if you don't know the facts but if you've done your HW it's average. Make sure you go outside to check out the Granma boat that brought Fidel and the boys over from Mexico.
What an interesting jewel of a place. We learned so much here. We walked away with a lot of questions and wanting to know more. Definitely a must-go to for Americans and anyone who doesn't know the Cuban history.
