Unfortunately information is clearly presented but while under renovation some rooms are closed and information is not in chronological order which makes it difficult. Must climb stairs for three stories. $8cuc entrance fee.

They charge high but limit you on what you carry in , what you watch - the attitude is " we do not care if you visit here or not" so we left and gave up the "pleasure"

Just propaganda on a low cost museum, but the ticket it’s super expensive. It’s only interesting for communist and locals. Don’t lose your time.

The visit to this museum helps to understand the recent history of Cuba. The museum is above all a description of the events that characterized the Cuban revolution. Few finds. The settings are therefore essential and spartan, but this is very much suited to the...More

Easy to navigate and attractively arranged, the Museum of the Mexican Revolution in the heart of Mexico City is a must stop for the history buff. I was thrilled to see the famous Zimmerman telegram and other artifacts from the 1910-1920 era that launched modern...More

You must leave your bags in storage after paying for your ticket, that was chaotic to say the least. Toilets are downstairs on the ground floor and aren't very well signed. To be honest we couldn't follow the exhibit and didn't realise we had to...More

5 CUC - try to get a guide if one is available (there might be a small charge - like another 3 CUC for the entire group if more than one). You get a bit more history that you might otherwise not know. I have done the tour... More
