this place was where the Cuban national Hero Jose Marti was born, you can see the "real" objects that belong to his family.

We took a cycle riksha to get us to the house. It is in old Havana, close to a railway station. First thing that gets into your eye is that it is renovated and better kept than the neighboring houses. Small house museum depicting the life of Jose Marti, great Cuban hero, the liberator from Spain colonialism.

The museum is full of artifacts related to Jose Marti and his quest for an independent Cuba. Artifacts include shackles from when he was briefly incarcerated and the desk he used to write on while in New York.

Of course it's interesting to have been in the house of such an important historical figure. But before you go to the house (which is surprisingly difficult to find) please be aware that they have absolutely no written information in English in the displays, and the guides speak only Spanish. I understand a little bit of Spanish so I could... More

The Jose Marti home is buried deep in the southern part of Havana Vieja, and requires a bit of searching until you suddenly come upon it. It is worth the 3 CUC fee. The home is well maintained. Displays and artifacts provide an informative outline of Marti’s life, along with the history of the Cuban independence movement. Artifacts include photos... More
