Very interesting visit. The monument is very impressive. The museum is quite small but it was interesting to see the artifacts. It was also interesting to get a perspective of the Cuban Revolution other than the American one. The mausoleum is very nice. Our visit...More

Set on a hill the Mausoleum is a very well visited place. The mural is fascinating recording lots of events. Did not find the Museum

The place is quite spectacular. Make sure to go inside and see the pictures and the things from the revolution.

Impressive statue and mural to 'El Commandante' dominating a massive square which is twenty minutes walk from the centre of town. A 'must see' if in St Clara.

Very interesting and informative experience. Pitty photos not allowed inside museum. Mausoleum beautifully designed and depicting how much respect Che Guevara generated and deserved.

Spent 30 mins visiting this site. Very spectacular from a distance but great to be able to get up close. The museum was closed so not sure what we missed.

It's a good idea to have a guide as the notices in the museum are only in Spanish but I'm sorry I don't know how to get one as ours were arranged by our tour operator. The only option might be to ask your hotel, they can... More

Che museum is in Santa Clara in the middle of the island. From both, Havana and Varadero it's around 3 hrs ride. Going there only for it isn't worth it. I suggest you organize a tour of Santa Clara, Cienfuegos and... More
