  • A perfect place, generous and far. If you want to understand Cuba's recent history, you should visit this place. The Museum offers many interesting insights in the time of the revolution.

  • A must-see when you are in Santa Clara. My fav was the museum which gives valuable insights into the live of Ernesto "Che" Guevara. There are some officers around that patrol the compound. Mostly friendly but don't do anything to provoke them. Follow their remarks without questioning them. You will be fine.
  • Museum itself is great if you like the history specially history of Latin America. The place is very nice and clean and memorial . Che monument is really awesome. The only thing is you cannot take pictures inside museum even without flashing
  • A must in Cuba. The mausoleum is amazing, the letter of Che Guevara to Fidel, written into stone near to his statue, is intense. It's free but 1 cuc will be asked to store bags or other objects before the visit of the museum.
  • My sole purpose of going to Santa Clara was to visit Che Guevera museum and I am glad I made all the efforts to be there. We stayed a night in Santa Clara, it was a great experience to see the small worn out city along with this well-kept Museum. It’s not a huge museum but it’s absolutely a good history lesson to understand this famous and somewhat controversial personality. The Museum hosts items used by Che and 29 of his fellow revolutionaries. You can feel their struggle for revolution through the items and pictures. It’s free of charge however mobile phones and cameras are not allowed to take inside. You will have to deposit those before you enter. At the time we visited, it wasn’t as crowded as mentioned by some of the reviews I read. There is a small café and a small souvenir shop next to it too. If you are planning your trip to Cuba and crossing by Santa Clara, I would highly recommend a detour and visit this place (of course only if you are interested in Cuban revolution and Che)
  • This is a museum of great historical significance. It's not big but it is interesting.
