Housed in the former Presidential Palace, the Museum of the Revolution and Granma Memorial outline Cuba's history in copious detail, with an emphasis on its independence and revolutionary struggles. In addition to the history lessons, exhibits, and memorabilia, there are wonderful works of art and some stunning architectural details, including a replica of Versaille's Hall of Mirrors, ornate bas-relief work, and interior decorations by Tiffany. Outside, you'll find several trucks, tanks, planes, and even a bit of a shot-down U2 spy plane, all surrounding the glass-enclosed Granma, the 59-foot motor launch that carried Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and 80 other fighters to the island in 1956. Give yourself at least 1 1/2 hour to see it all.
