This was a small, excellent museum displaying items, weapons, a wealth of information about the Bay of Pigs invasion by the United States. All writing was in Spanish. Since my daughter is fluent in Spanish, I didn't inquire as to whether there was an English...More

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.

On the way to visit Museo Playa Girón we didn’t expect to pass a sign on the road saying ‘Australia’ but that is the name of the tiny hamlet near the museum. Australia or “Central Australia” (named after the original sugar factory located there) is...More

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.

Either by taxi or bus. U can hire a taxi for a day and then you don't have to worry about time constraints with buses.
