No cameras allowed, no touching exhibit cases, no talking at the mausoleum. I was treated like a child. I'm respectful enough not to speak by a tomb, I don't need to be told. It's a quick stop, in and out in 30 minutes, so if you're in the area go see it. I wouldn't be making plans for a specific... More

It was a very impressive memorial. Much nicer and moving than I had expected when arriving. I wasn't too happy that I couldn't take my camera inside but it was understandable. Everything inside was detailed into Che's life. I wish there was more stuff to do around the site. Either way, I studied Che and read a lot of books... More

Incredible place and magnificent Mausoleum of Che. There is a grave of Guevara's co soldiers. The statue of Che is enormus. There is the song "Hasta Siempre" in my mind, the moment I was there.

A huge Che's statue is kind of impressive. Furthermore, his last words written on stone are something for his fans. And the grave - a bit chill but with this historic feeling in the air.

This was a very impressive memorial to Che and those comrades killed with him in Bolivia. The Cubans take this site extremely seriously and absolutely no cameras are allowed inside the actual Mausoleum. Witihn the mausoleum the ashes of Che and each of his comrades are contained within niches in the rock wall. A very simple idea, but done with... More

A very moving, atmospheric, evocative experience. The tomb and museum are a fitting tribute to the hero of heroes, regardless of your political persuasion in my opinion. We were lucky in that, unlike what the guidebooks say, we were the only visitors, post lunch on a Sunday. The staff are lovely and, despite my lack of Spanish and their minimal... More

I Think that everyone visits Cuba should go to Santa Clara to pay respect to a hero! Impressive outside, a place of memory and devotion in the interior not only for Che but for all those killed in Santa Clara. The thing that drew our attention in every town we visited in Cuba is that they respect and have homes... More

The memorial is next to the museum of Che. They're both part of the same building. The mausoleum actually contains Che's ashes, and those of most of the others who died with him in Bolivia. Each funeral urn is displayed in a niche in the rock. There's no religion here, just worship. It's a secular monument to sacred memory. As... More

This is a very moving experience .... you feel as if Che is following through the Museum, guiding you through the history and the Revolution ... a well organised museum and so easy to follow the history of Che through the years that he was alive.

We saw this museum in Santa Clara, full of historical facts that we were not aware of. We had learnt some history here. The museum is well organised and well maintained.
