“Nothing special”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

I do not recommend visiting this memorial.
Does not worth the travel. Cubans are very fond of Che and they are proud of this memorial but I cannot see a reason to travel all the way to Santa Clara to see it.
Very poor museum with a few personal items of Guevara.

“Great collection”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

It's free which is a relief. It's all in Spanish so if you don't know Spanish, it's a bit difficult to work out, but you get the basis. It's a great collection of his artifacts

“A hero for the ages.”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

It is no wonder that Che is such an important person in Cuba. He fought only for the people and never sought personal gain.

“Don't miss the memorial behind the parking lot.”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

There was a long queue to get into the Mausoleum that stretched out into the parking lot. We were walking toward the end of the queue and noticed a small sign pointing out a memorial so we skipped the queue and kept walking. I found it more serene and beautiful than the official mausoleum that people were queuing for.

The museum had lots of interesting info and it was well worth the visit. Lots of outside pictures and a pretty view.

“Interesting”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

This small museum is worth a visit. You'll learn about Che's family and background and his life before and after the revolution in Cuba. The original, famous letter he wrote to Fidel before he left Cuba is exposed. The most interesting are the amazing fotos that I have not seen in any of the other historic revolutionary sites in Granma province.
