  • A museum where propaganda and historical facts mingle. Everything is moving, because the contemporary history of the world can touch it. Indeed, the revolution, the epic of fidel castro or che Guevara are the order of the day in this palace.

  • Full of incredible historic photos and artefacts. Interesting museum. You will learn some new thing about Cuba and Cuba history. Some of the historic plates are in Spanish, but you can get the audio guide in English or ask locals for help.
  • Although it's a must to understand some of the history; it's very out-dated. At the time of visit, it was going through much needed renovations. The display is very poor and really doesn't give the history the credit it deserves.
