“Great!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

I enjoyed visiting this museum of nostalgic Cuba. It was great to see some very old artifacts and learn a bit more of my Cuban roots. It's a free museum run by volunteers and donations. Great architecture, nice collection of artifacts and information packed into a small museum! Worth the visit.

“Cuban history, great old house and school preserved”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Just a nice place to visit, alot of history packed into this free museum, lovely theatre as well.. Focuses mora on cubas independence from spain in the late 1800's and jose marti.. Sem stufffrom the castro led revolution, but mostly limited to the cuban exiles commitment to escaping the island by anymeans necessary

“Cuban History”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

A beautiful building of Cuban architecture with bright tile on the floors and walls. Each room has its own features; cuban artifacts, cuban cigars, cuban stamps, etc. There is also a theater in the building that should be utilized for a nice video of Cuban History, but doesn't appear to be used for anything.

Great Cuban history site. The architecture is awesome. If you are in to stamp collecting, they have an extensive Cuban collection.
