Small museum giving a view on what happened during the pig bay escalation with the Americans, contains some memorabilia and pictures. Pity that everyting was explained only in Spanish.

Although this small museum is mainly in Spanish, the imagery and the items and the film that they show about the Bay of Pigs invasion from the revolutionary perspective is worth a visit.

You will need a guide if you do not speak Spanish. This museum is a must if you are interested in history and want to hear the other side of what we're taught in schools.
