an all right place, but was it worth the detour?

All right little place to visit, decent enough exposition playing tribute to Che. As a more general comment on Santa Clara - probably this is the one thing you might want to see... read more

All right little place to visit, decent enough exposition playing tribute to Che. As a more general comment on Santa Clara - probably this is the one thing you might want to see there, I was done with everything I wanted to see in Santa Clara withing 2 hours of starting, walking to most places (OK, I went back from...

This is the main attraction in Santa Clara and rates with the other great mausoleums of the world. There are 3 parts to this site, the actual mausoleum and museum (not open Mondays), a memorial garden and the statue. It's part of Cuban history and should not be missed, only need one day in Santa Clara if you want to... More

Regardless of if youre a Che Fan or not its one of Santa Clara top attractions and worth visiting while visiting. Its about a 20 minute walk from the city center or a short Bike taxi ride away

I took me with surprise how touched I was by visiting the museum and memorial of Che Guevara in Santa Clara. When I started planning to go to Cuba I was astonished by the status he still holds in Cuba and wanted to learn more. A visit to the monument, the memorial and museum in Santa Clara therefore became a... More

I like it a lot: the way it was built, the homage they are paying to Che Guevara, the small museum where you can get an actual glimpse at his life... I really got goose bumps after visiting the mausoleum

Che's mausoleum and museum are well worth the visit - this gives you an insight into the Cuban reverence to Che that stays with you when you return home - highly recommended.

It was a nice place but soldiers were grim. I was not allowed to bring my back inside but have to hand it to a lady outisde the museum. Since I was traveling solo and all important papers and my money was inside that back I was not willing to hand it over. That is why I went back without... More

My wife and I visited this location in July 2015. This is a tribute to a hero and icon of the Cuban people. You are not allowed to take photographs inside the mausoleum and the atmosphere inside is as you would expect - really respectful. The Museum is interesting and the statute outside to Che is indicative of the standing... More

It was fascinating to see the godlike stature Che has in Cuba. The monument and mausoleum speak to this. The museum was interesting.

This is a sacred room. You may bring nothing into this room in your hands---absolutely no cameras. Hats must be removed and there is no talking. It seemed appropriate once I took in the plaques which memorializes Che Guevara and the other men and woman who were killed in Bolivia on October 7, 1966. Their remains are housed in this... More
