Bay of Pigs Museum showcases a recent historical event which took place in 1961. The museum commemorates the attempt by a group of Cuban exiles under John F. Kennedy to overthrow the Cuban leader Fidel Castro which was subsequently foiled as a result of a more powerful opponent. It was in April 1961 that these people landed at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba with the aim of outwitting Castro which could not somehow materialise. What this museum does is to cater to this historical event through a collection of items, photographs and documents which are kept at display to the visitors.

Bay Of Pigs Museum Reviews & Ratings
Well Worth The Visit. These amazing Cuban patriots from all walks of life and races did not just let Communism take over their country. They fought it with everything they had. Don't let the fences stop you, the museum is in the process of being renovated... go inside and your guide may be one of the men who actually took part in the Bay of Pigs Invasion!
Amazing experience!!! Our guide Julio was too kind and very informative. Julio was one of the survivors of the Bay of Pigs invasion. It’s a must visit while in little Havana. It was free and kindly asked for donations.
Living History! Bay of Pigs Museum and Library in Miami. Visited with men that were fighters and captured there in 1961. Mother of the man in the white shirt negotiated directly with Castro to allow thousands of family members of fighters to also depart to USA. Living history!
The Bay of Pigs museum was an incredible experience. We had several hours after our cruise and before our flight, so we checked it out. Saddled with all of our luggage, we were greeted by our tour guide, who invited us to leave our bags in the lobby. This is a free museum of Bay of Pigs artifacts, proclamations and pictures. Our experience was led by one of the soldiers who lived it and then survived as a POW for 2+ years, in Cuba, after the invasion… very moving. The stories were riveting and our time there was well worth the trip into Little Havana. As we said good bye, we were invited back anytime, because, “we are all now friends for life.” Please check it out- it is so special... you won't find this history anywhere else.
The guide was a prisoner during the invasion. Great and so interesting.
