It's not a great museum, but it is interesting to see how the Bay of Pigs event is protrayed by the Cuban government.

I visited this Museum as part of an American tour group. It offers an interesting perspective on this attempted invasion after the Cuban Revolucion. Good displays. There is a 2 CUCs fee for cameras used on the property.

We loved the displays and artifacts in this museum. The only downside is it's all in Spanish and you miss a lot by not reading the captions. Our son reads and speaks Spanish so we were ok. It is also quite warm inside. Allow at least an hour or more to view it properly.

One of the most interesting museums we have ever seen. It was not on our list at first. To see the letters from Fidel to Augusto etc. in original, how the attack went back and forward during the revolution. You dont have to agree with what happend, but it was very touching. Recommend to read every word from beginning to end, dont just scan it as we often do in museums.

I only wish there were more English translations for those of us with poor spanish skills.
