- Housed in what was once the presidential palace, this place has quite a considerable collection of objects of major historical relevance, covering the period from the liberation struggle from Spain to the Cuban Revolution. Exhibits include documents, photographs, videos and two impressive life-size sculptures of Ernesto 'Ché' Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos. Outdoors you will find the Granma memorial, being the embarkation that brought Fidel Castro and 80 other revolutionaries back to Cuba after being exiled in Mexico; the boat is protected by a huge glass urn and guarded by soldiers. At the entrance you can see a burning chamber, placed at the foot of a list of all those revolutionary martyrs who perished during the campaign. Admission costs USD 4 for tourists, and 2 Cuban Pesos for locals.
