Read my review about the revolution square as this is at the same place. You arrive at the square and Jose Marti statue is here. Museum is small enough to do in less than an hour. You pay 3-5 CUC and photos allowed. Sit where Fidel sat and where he gave his speech to millions.

The monument is interesting both historically and architecturally. Stand at the bottom of the star-shaped tower behind Marti's statue and you can look across to the Ministry of the Interior building with the huge mural of Che Guevara. And you're standing where Castro stood to address huge meetings of the Cuban faithful. An experience.

If you read Spanish, the museum/archival display inside the base of this monument is very well done. If you don't read Spanish, it is at least worth a short visit to the outside of the monument to get a sense/feel for the place where Fidel addressed large masses of people.

Along with the Jose Marti memorial, you'll also find the Che and Cienfuego building murals in the Plaza de la Revolución. You have to pay 1 CUC to go up the ramp to see the memorial. There are two stars on the ground where Fidel stood during his speeches so you can stand in the same spot as him. There's... More

You can get a great view from Revolution square, but there is no museum or anyone to tell you about the building or Jose Marti.

Visited the Jose Marti Monument on a trip to Havana in Jan/14. This is a very impressive monument to Cuba"s leader of the war against the Spanish who was killed in battle. Located in Revolution Plaza it overlooks the city and offers a wonderful view of Havana if you decide to go up the elevator to the observation level.

The monument to the Revolution houses a display on the hero of Cuba's indepenence from Spain at the end of the 19th century. The tiles and gold citations along with seating areas to contemplate the wisdom of José Marti are scattered amont the show cases of photos and historic objects. The text is in Spanish only, however.
