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

Killed as ordered by the americans and loved in the rest of the world for his life and values, Che Guevara is now one of the most valuable product of cuban industry. T-shirts, hats, keyholders, magnets, and the list is infinite. Guevara is still working for the revolution. The mausoleum is a beautiful gift to Guevara and to all the... More

Having been to the Museum of the Revolution in Havana and reading whatever books we could and watching countless documentaries and speaking to countless elder Cubans about the revolution, it only seemed right that we go to the Che Guevara memorial in Santa Clara to pay our respects to a man who gave his life for the freedom of others....

By the time our tour reached Santa Clara I had had enough time to research the contribution that Che Guevara had made to the overthrow of the Batista regime but this museum encapsulated his life in great detail. It is evident that whilst Fidel Castro led the revolution, it is Ernesto Che Guevara who symbolises it for Cubans. Visiting Che's... More

Very Imposing mausolé ! You need to have respect when you visit this place. A lot of details about him and who he was and what he did. Everybody in the world knows Che Guevara. His real first name was Augusto and he was a doctor. Born in Argentina. He helped in the revolution with Fidel Castro. He died trying... More

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.
