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

The museum displays lots of personal items, from Che's childhood till his last moments in Bolivia, and all his revolutionary struggles and ambitions in between. After paying your respects in the mausoleum, make sure you spend an hour here.

We were lucky as we had a very knowledgeable guide in the bus on our way to the mausoleum and museum. We now better understand why the obsession with Che, and why he is idolized. The monument is a definite photo op as is the square. Unfortunately, no photo's are allowed inside the 2 buildings. A word of caution, if... More

We first stopped and visited the mausoleum of Che Guevara and then went to see the museum. It shows the life of Che Guevara from childhood until Bolivia. I was luck to have an English speaking private guide who translated for us the Spanish explanations. A lot of pictures and information to help us understand who he was and what... More
