We stumbled upon this museum while on a walkabout tour of Holguin. It felt like such a fortunate surprise! We really enjoyed the historic pieces and photos as well as the shrine to Fidel. The hosts were welcoming and gave us important information.

Interesting museum but needs more exhibits with English translation for English speakers to benefit more. Che's army belt and Fidel's office are novel, many reminders of the revolution as well as local historic artefacts, Allow an hour.

Thoroughly enjoyed the live presentation of African dancing and singing. The dancers and singers were very talented. On party with any professional performance I've ever seen.

not a lot of artifacts displayed, or gifts to purchase. The Museum does have a great back story and even a love/tragic tale to it. It's ALWAYS open, very centric and close to many places where you can buy Cuban trinkets.
