“Bay of betrayal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We visited this small Museum in Little Havana in early December. It may look closed but it is probably open----a buzzer will unlock the door for you. Few artifacts remain from a disaster where everyone is either killed or captured from a country that we have not recognized for over fifty years. It is a small wonder that few things are displayed. The staff took a dim view of John Kennedy. Hard to blame them. They had trained to go in through a small town with dock facilities. Kennedy changed their destination to a swamp with only one or two roads out that could be easily defended-----changed it within 36 hours of the invasion!!! After the first wave hist the beaches Kennedy also decided to cancel air cover. It was suicide and sure defeat. If anything this museum explains those things.

“Specific and quaint museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

The museum is dedicated to the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba. The exhibit inside consists of mostly photographs of the many people who fought, and artifacts, new paper clippings, and magazines covering the event. It is small but interesting. There also seems to be a community center gathering hall inside, the people inside were very friendly and welcoming.

“Great history lesson”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for some intersting historical refresher on the Bay of Pigs invasion, visit this little museum. It's a tribute to the soldiers who were part of this historic invasion.
