If you go to Sant Clara you must come here but if you are driving look out for the bicycle cowboys. We are sure they flattened one of our tyres when we did not give a big tip for unwanted guidance. They then tried to rip us off for puncture repair. The museum, mausoleum and statue are very interesting.

This place is definitely worth a visit, although the opening hours are not obvious. I was turned away by soldiers from the mausoleum, only to find it open suddenly (at 1030?). The museum was still closed inside, however. So maybe check before you go.

The monument as well as the free of charge museum was worth seeing. A little more information and history background in English language would have been helpful besides all the artefacts and photographs. Unfortunately we had a bad experience with our rental car: We did park it in a dedicated parking spot directly in front of the monument where we... More

Mausoleum is in the region where the final battle between Che Guevara and Batista's army took place, in Santa Clara. Within the mausoleum you can observe personal items of Che (including warfare, books, handwritten notes) and also maps depicting the "route" of Che during the revolution. It is worth to have along a tour guide in order to understand better... More

The best highlight of the city. See this huge square with statue of Che Guevara. Visit the free museum and the mausoleum where Che is buried.

The memorial itself was very beautiful, both the outside featuring Che and the inside featuring a memorial for all the member of the "Bolivian Team" is very nice to see. The museum is your average Cuban propaganda museum. If you always wanted to know which kind of toothbrush Che used you'll be at the right place...

Definitely worth a stop if you are in the vicinity. The monument is huge and there is also a museum with mementoes from Che's childhood and later life as well as the mausoleum. Everything is free to enter but do leave everything (bags etc) in your form of transport - otherwise you have to leave it in the left luggage... More

We learnt an enormous amount of Cuban history during our holiday - and in stripping away the western propaganda, our visit to Cuba would have been incomplete if we had not visited this place. A very moving tribute to both Che and his fellow combatants. The mausoleum has a very strict policy on none admission of cameras - so don't... More

Like him or loathe him, this memorial to Che is inspiring. The museum not only tells you about his life journey, but it introduces you to the man - not just the legend. Highly recommended.
