We had a great time learning about Che and seeing his photos and items on display. A highlight was the beautiful sculptures of those who lost their lives, including Che. We really liked the statue outside too.

We visited the mausoleum on a day trip from Varadero to Santa Clara, Trinidad and Cienfuegos. It was good to learn about Che and mausoleum worth a visit to see the various heroes buried there and the eternal flame.

It goes without saying that you have to visit the mausoleum if you have even the slightest knowledge of or interest in Cuba's recent history. I felt rushed in the actual mausoleum, but it's no different from similar places in the world, such as Lenin's...More

The museum itself can be considered interesting and contains a lot of personal object that belonged to Che. The memorial, on the other hand, is rather dull. I have never been a fan of Communism and Communist Regimes but they intertwined so much with the...More

After visiting the 1961 Bay of Pigs Museum in Playa Girón it seemed a natural corollary to venture on to the ‘Che’ Guevara Mausoleum, especially as we were planning to head to the city of Cienfuegos (roughly in the general direction of Santa Clara). The...More

There's an odd combination of the modest and the over-wrought in this mausoleum. The room where the ashes of Che and the people who died with him are interred is quiet and moving with wood, water and greenery to remind you of the jungle where...More

It's a good idea to have a guide as the notices in the museum are only in Spanish but I'm sorry I don't know how to get one as ours were arranged by our tour operator. The only option might be to ask your hotel, they can... More

Che museum is in Santa Clara in the middle of the island. From both, Havana and Varadero it's around 3 hrs ride. Going there only for it isn't worth it. I suggest you organize a tour of Santa Clara, Cienfuegos and... More
