Just a nice place to visit, alot of history packed into this free museum, lovely theatre as well.. Focuses mora on cubas independence from spain in the late 1800's and jose marti.. Sem stufffrom the castro led revolution, but mostly limited to the cuban exiles commitment to escaping the island by anymeans necessary

A beautiful building of Cuban architecture with bright tile on the floors and walls. Each room has its own features; cuban artifacts, cuban cigars, cuban stamps, etc. There is also a theater in the building that should be utilized for a nice video of Cuban History, but doesn't appear to be used for anything.

Great Cuban history site. The architecture is awesome. If you are in to stamp collecting, they have an extensive Cuban collection.

I went with my son,Daniel, and my daughter, Monica, for my 56 birthday to the Keys. I am fromcuba, of course, but I have been in the USA for the past long 40 years. My kids are as much cuban as I am, and know a lot from that little Island in the Caribe. My daughter wrote a poem back... More

I felt the presence of Jose Marti as this is the place where he united the Cuban exiles in 1892 for the War of Independence. A temple of freedom and hope for the future of a free Cuba.
