A huge, beautiful monument to a great poet and a true believer in freedom for his people. Even though I believe his martyrdom was not neccessary, he was and is recognized as a hero. His bust is at every school in Cuba.

Very tall monument to the hero who helped release Cuba from the grasp of Spain. Odd to see buzzards flying overhead the day we visited the plaza, which is lined with metal sculptures of Fidel and Che on two government buildings. One man freed Cubans from Spain, and the others ... freed Cubans from Batista?

Honestly OK but Havana is overun with revolutionary monuments which dilutes the attraction ultimately.

You can tell that Cubans take great pride in their memorials and this one is spectacular! Beautiful tribute to a famous leader.

This is pretty much an obligatory stop if you're spending a few days in Havana. Theres not much to see or do, so don't plan to spend long there. Just take a few photos at the well-designed monument, and also photos with the famous building murals of Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos. The museum of Jose Marti was closed when... More

This place is in the middle of nowhere, way outside urban Havana. The cab rides are expensive and there is little to see. I wouldn't waste my time with all the awesome stuff in Havana.

Well it's a monument. Big pointy and revolutionary. The plaza around it is good with portraits of revolutionary heroes on buildings. A must do in Havana. For a good experience go there in a yellow coco taxi

Located on the north side of Revolution Square is the Jose Marti Memorial tower. Standing at 109 meters tall this 5 point star shaped tower covered with Cuban marble is the highest point in all of Havana. The top of the monument is accessible by elevator, when working, which must have some amazing views. The statue of Jose Marti is... More

An interesting museum where you can have a guide accompany you if you wish (we were given the option when we paid for our tickets at the venue). The lifts to the top of the tower haven't worked for a year or so - it doesn't seem like there are many plans kicking around to get it working anytime soon... More

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.
