I didn't know what I expect but was pleasantly surprised at the amount of information. I learned quite a bit about how Cubanos see their history and the revolution. Definitely worth the visit!

Spent a few hr one morning here, theres no AC so the earlier the cooler. Very interesting museum and great collecting of items from the revolution, must see! Also the cafe makes great daiquiris and coffee!

The added bonus is you get to see a building where some of the events actually happened. The displays are a little homemade in places but you do get to learn a bit about attitudes to the west and America in particular.
