This Museum is housed in what used to be the Presidential Palace from 1920 until the early 60th. The Museum of the revolution provides a complete vision backed up (by Documents, photos and many other objects)of the History of the struggles of the Cuban People for independence since the times of Spanish colonists to the consolidation of the revolutionary process. Very Interesting.
Built in 1920 to house former Cuban presidents it is fitting that the revolutionary museum be housed here. The last president left in 1959 as a result of the revolution.
Walk from room to room to learn about the history of the revolution and how it became a socialist republic. Warning: Some of the photographs and artifacts may not be suitable for viewing by young children.
See if you can find the bullet holes in the marble when you go up the steps to the first level of the museum.
Walk to the back of the museum and you can see aircraft and other vehicles on display. I took this photo of a delivery truck that was bullethole sprayed in a raid during the revolution.
Museo de la Revolution (one of many), Havana. This one is in the former presidential palace with awesome architecture and Tiffany decorations. Worth the admission fee just to see the opulence of its former life. I certainly left with a greater understanding of the harsh conditions under Batista.
They will charge you more if you want to take your camera in with you. I didn't, but in retrospect, I wish I had!:(
It also has many of the tanks, planes and the Granma parked out back for you to look at as well.
This picture was taken in the foyer of the museum. God, this building is beautiful, but tells some hard stories.
I cannot find any photo's of the outside of the building so this is a postcard that I have.
