I cannot recommend Cuba enough - great diving, lovely people, and the architecture, culture and historical sites are a time capsule. With the changes coming fast, I recommend visiting before there is a McDonalds on each street corner.

My parents, my 13 year old, and myself visited monument in late June 2015. We had a great time. I think this is a good spot to visit, especially if you like history. A lot of monuments and museums in Cuba have a slanted view of history and are not accurate. However I like this museum a lot. We also... More

Museums are very convincing of their pro-Cuban approach to life and this museum isn't an exception. The exhibits weren't overly interesting and not really surprising... The booth outside where you must "check in" your electronics is also a hassle, but typical communist era mentality. Not so convenient for tour groups, hence why most tourists do not access the INSIDE of... More

This is an interesting place to visit. Also known as Revolution Square it looks like a huge car park where the Monument to Jose Marti dominates the square. The square is noted as being the place where many political rallies took place and Fidel Castro and other political figures address Cubans on such matters of importance. On the nearby building...

This is the largest monument to this Hero of Cuba but his bust or statue appears in squares and buildings everywhere on the Island.

The monument in the biggest in Cuba I believe. It is in Plaza de la Revolución, so you can expect lots of tourists. It is the perfect spot for taking some nice pictures. I actually went into the museum, the cost was 1 CUC. I think it was worth it, nice pictures and memorabilia of the life of Martí, you... More

This is a very tall monument to the gentleman who lead the defeat of the Spanish back in the nineteenth/twentieth century. He was a revolutionary called Jose Marti. It stands on Revolutionary Square and unless you have time to go to the top, where the views I understand are spectacular, then there's not a great deal else to say about... More

Very tall monument to the hero who helped release Cuba from the grasp of Spain. I guess unless you go to the top there's not much else to see there. With limited time, I opted out of going inside and was ok with taking some pics from the outside.

This is a monument to Jose Marti who was an 19th century revolutionary who led a revolt against the Spanish. Our tour leader did not recommend going into the museum so we did not
