I took a tour that went from Havana to Cienfiegos, Santa Clara and Trinidad. When you pull up to the Mausoleo you see the statue of Che high in the sky with the Cuba Flag blowing along side of it. When you get inside you see a flame as well as the face of Che and other revolutionaries that passed... More

Unfortunately the museum was closed on Monday, the only day I went, but I still walked around the plaza and saw the bronze statue of Che Guevara and stone wall carvings. Would have liked to see more, next time I will not go on a Monday!

What a disappointment about the day as we were told that it would be open but we found out that it was closed on Mondays and also it was under going renovations. Anyhow the monument and the statue outside were well worth it.

Time spent in the mausoleum is hushed and reverent. The museum is lively and full of information and photos of Cuba's National Hero. This is a good way to learn more about Che.

Needs to be run more like a memorial than a military security. Please enlist help of international community on supplying clean washrooms.

Impressive mausoleum, much closer to the people than some other memorials I have visited. The flowers for each individual are very touching.

Having followed the life and adventures of Che Guevara and visited many of the places that he travelled, it was an awesome experience to visit his Mausoleum and Museum complex. Buried in the Mausoleum are 17 guerrillas(including Che) killed in the failed Bolivian revolution. In 1997 they were removed from a secret mass grave in Bolivia and reburied in this... More

We know we are in Che town here. But being on the Plaza de Revolution, this Memorial is massive….. Not only is a huge Che figure there but it is on a huge stone wall with carvings in it. We visited the eternal flame Castro lit here in 1997 when they brought Chi’s remains here. And again we get reminded... More
