To be honest, after more than two weeks travelling around Cuba, we had heard more than enough of Che and the Revolution. But in Santa Clara, the experience is on another level. The museum complex only opens at 9.30 a.m., but be early, to beat the tourist groups, which will make you queue for a long time. The small museum... More

A very important historical place everyone must see while visiting Cuba. But don't expect too much - the Museum is pretty small with some everyday stuff used by Che and his brother-soldiers, photos and Mausoleum is just some memorial stones in the wall. One of the stones is Che's. Photography is forbidden.

The mausoleo is just what it is, a mausoleo. Nothing special. But because it's Ché, it's totally different. The best thing to do is to combine your visit to the mausoleo with other Ché memorials in Santa Clara

When you are on Cuba, this monument is a must. Although Che died in 1967, his ideas and life are present everywhere. His figure on a spacious place is impressive. The museum displays things he possessed or used. But it does not really reflect his life and impact on Cuba´s history. The Mausoleum is a quiet place, no photos allowed.... More

Some great history here and very reverent. Clean and pretty views of Santa Clara. Can't say I am a big Che fan but this is well done.

The history written on it in such a great detail, the beautiful landscape and the impressive statue of Che Guevara. This is a place that must not be missed. It very well represents one of the most admired people in Cuba.

This is a great experience from the moment you see the statue. The Mausoleo is well done, very sombre, with the eternal flame. Note no cameras or bags, these are to be left a few metres from the entrance. There is a cemetery at the back of the Mausoleo & toilets as well. Its all free. Just remember to bring... More

An interesting impressive monument, but certainly not worth the trip to Santa Clara unless you are a big Che fan. You can easily walk from the city centre, just bring some water along

Among the many museums in Cuba with a link to the revolution, this one lacks in-your-face propaganda material. It is very well curated, with lots of photos and artifacts from Che's life starting from when he was a child in Argentina up to his death in Bolivia. The exhibits are well arranged, the staff are knowledgeable, and the atmosphere befitting... More

The imposing statue on its top is the first clue you are in for a great attraction. Inside, the museum has a tomb area where Che and other revolutionary fighters are honored. It's decorated well and the atmosphere is fitting. In the museum, you travel through Che's life from child to the end. You leave with a wealth of information... More
