Che obviously a revered person in Cuba so visiting his resting place and museum is important to understand Cuba. His statue is huge and in a nice setting. His remains were brought from Bolivia where he was killed some 30 years after his death. Museum shows some history and informative. Pretty solemn in some parts of the exhibit.

Our tour group stopped at the museum because it was included in our itinerary. Unfortunately, it was raining and they said the museum itself was closed (humidity to the papers or some excuse). We saw a bit outside and used the bathrooms and left. Not much else to do in Santa Clara so that was disappointing.

This was a must see on our trip to Cuba, to help understand the history of the Cuba people. There is a small mausoleum with eternal flame and plaques on the wall for Che an his comrades. Across the hall is the museum where you can see artifacts used in the Cuban revolution such as rifles and some of Che personal artifacts (lab coat, wrist watch, pipe, photos etc). Not really too much to see but worth a visit to help better understand the history of Cuba. It me inspired me to research Che a little further myself which was somewhat eye opening.

Set a little bit outside Santa Clara, the Ché monument is very striking. There is a garden a little behind it honouring fallen revolutionary comrades.

The mausoleum underneath the statue is very peaceful, and the small museum about Ché has some really interesting photos of him, and his upbringing.

You will understand how much people love and respect Che when you visit the mausoleum. Be sure to dress respectfully. About 20 people are let in at a time. Be sure to visit the museum after you exit the main area for the photographs and artifacts.

For most of the people, this is the reason to visit Santa Clara. This site is 15min walking distance from the center. Be careful as the museum only opens from 8.30 to 12.30! The mausoleum is always open. If you are not interested in visiting inside (where Che Guevara is), it is better to go in the afternoon, and avoid the bus tours.

Santa Clara is small, boring, and not particularly pleasant. I regret that I didn’t make a flying visit just to see the mausoleum. But, the mausoleum made it (just about) worthwhile and I’m glad I came. On my trip I didn’t find myself able to interact with the history of Cuba as much as I’d expected (or would have liked), and this was a fantastic opportunity to do so. The mausoleum isn’t particularly big, but it’s interesting and well curated. I’d say that an hour (and certainly no more than an hour and a half) is all that’s required to properly do this site, both inside and out. I’m glad that I did so.

I understand that you can do day trips to Santa Clara from Havana; on this basis, I’d very much recommend you do so. Just make sure not to stay.

What a moving and fitting tribute to this Argentinian hero of Cuba! We were fortunate that our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Che and spoke great English so she was able to give us so much detail about his exploits. What a man!!! I knew very little about him when I arrived on my 9 day tour of Cuba but after hearing some of the stories and visiting places of importance, I found myself in tears in the mausoleum. A true hero!!

Really imposing structure from the outside - in keeping with the high regard in which Cubans still hold Che Guevara. Inside it has all sorts of items owned by Che and his colleagues. There are descriptions of the exhibits in Spanish and English.

Tour guides in Cuba can be pretty poor, unfortunately, we had one such mute fellow and it spoilt our enjoyment of our visit to the mausoleum complex. Now I am back home and have researched the place I understand what the various sculptures and messages mean..and that there is a vast vault and eternal flame below! Our guide failed to tell us even this basic fact so most of the group just walked around the area above ground. Either ensure you get a good guide or check it out online before you visit so you get the most out of it. Definitely a must see though. You don't realise just how highly regarded in Cuba this Argentinian is.
