The museum is located in the Palacio Presidencial, which was the official residence of Cuban presidents between 1920 & 1965. The building was turned into a museum dedicated to the Cuban Revolution in 1974.

Highlights include the Hall of Mirrors & Golden Hall, there are exhibitions to Cuban history from the 15th century to the present day. The bulk of the exhibitions concentrate on the Cuban Revolution & behind the museum surrounded by glass is the Granma yacht along with planes, vehicles & weapons used in the revolution.

The museum was open 10am-5pm & the ticket price was 5 CUC.
