I loved it, my daughter, 11, was bored. I'm hoping to turn her into a revolutionary, we'll see where that goes. Subtlety is the key to that, I suppose, though it won't be found in this monument, museum, which is an exercise in Che hagiography. The statue, in particular, reflects a time of activism now missing in this world. This... More

It's worth visiting if you want to learn about the history of Cuba and Santa-Clara is very lively at night in the park.

A wonderful memorial, beautifully and respectfully done. Of course, if your not into revolutions and revolutionaries, then this might not be for you. But if you have an open mind and are going to Santa Clara, dust off some history and find out more about why Che is so revered. Maybe listen to 'Hasta Siempre' on the way there.

The visit to the Mausoleum and Museum was one of the highlights of our trip to Cuba. The Museum provided a wide variety of items on the history of the early Revolution. The Mausoleum contained the remains of not only Che Guevara, one of the world's most famous iconic leaders, but also a number of his comrades. An impressive and... More

You cannot go to Cuba without stopping here. The museum is guarded by soldiers. Cameras are not allowed. It is a simple memorial to a very influential man, but informative and interesting. Unless you speak / read Spanish, you will need a guide to explain the exhibits. There were many photos displayed here which I had never seen before. We... More

If you go to Cuba, you cannot omit this. Love him or hate him Che was the real icon of Cuba. The mausoleum & museum are done very respectfully - about the only spot in Cuba which is free entry. The museum houses a good range of Che curios. Was surprised there is no reference to Motorcycle Diaries or his... More

Very simple; beautifully presented but many of the exhibits did not have an English translation - which means we should have learned more Spanish before we visited. Very educational also.

Long waits can be expected. Good to go and pay your respects to those it remembers. Enjoy the sunshine whilst you wait.

This has to be one of the reasons why i came to Cuba. To finally see the jaw dropping architecture and monument in honor of Che Gueverra. Although you cannot take pictures withing this museum, you understand the reason why is because it is sacred to the Cuban people of all his belongings he possessed during the Bolivia revolution.
