Museum of Che

Must pay your respects to understand the power and importance of Che. Inside and outside are both a must.

Again, a very poorly curated and explained museum--even for Spanish speakers. Photos without dates or locations, not much about his chronic health condition (asthma) or very much about his family life. More of a temple than a museum.

This place stored the remains of Che Guevara and other soldiers who died with Che. It's a solemn place with historical significance. You must not bring anything with you, nor camera. Leave everything in your car. You must get in line to go in in small groups. They have staff on site to manage the traffic. The museum is a... More

This was a must for any history buff. So see the burial chamber and the monument outside was fantastic. Inside it is a very quiet, respectful feel and beautifully cared for. There is a small museum dedicated to the life of Che, with lots of artifacts etc... When entering the site you must leave phones and cameras with security as... More

This was an eye opener to US citizens in the history and feelings of the Cuban people. Only hushed conversation allowed and don't touch the cabinets holding the exhibits. It was interesting, but made me wonder where the equal for Castro was located.

Worth the visit. One of the few museums where I spent time actually looking and reading all exhibits. History in action.

If you are in Santa Clara you have to visit the museum and the mausoleum. I was really surprised that the admission was free! I have read a lot of Che Guevara in the past. So it was really amazing to see all the personal things and photos in the museum. The visit of the museum and mausoleum was really... More

After reading up on the history of the revolution and detailed accounts of Che & Fidel going to this museum tied the reality of the hardship these passionate men and their command had to endure to free Cuba. I was literally crying when I saw the each face of each revolutionary retrieved from Bolivia to their final resting place in... More
