Informative and interesting! The hall is beautiful, and it has a balcony with a view. Not too expensive.

This museum is mostly for the history buff. It has many artifacts from the many revolutions depicting many battles and victories from Baptista to Fidel Castro.

Is everything presented to you in the Museum of the Revolution true? No. But is everything presented to you in the Smithsonian American History museum true? That is a more difficult question. The Museum of the Revolution is an essential experience for an American tourist...More

Don't waste your money, uninformative and one sided, missing a lot of information. Better off looking it up on the Internet when you get a connection. The Che museum across the river is a better use of time.

The building itself is beautiful and undergoing restoration. The exhibits were underwhelming. There just was not much stuff there. Just a series of rooms, many of which were empty. This may change when the restoration is complete but it was just not a good exhibit....More

Given the significance of the Revolution and it’s impact on Cuba since, this museum did not do justice to the event, the struggle or the people. The building was more interesting than the artefacts.
