El Museo de la Revolución (La Habana)

We started our visit with a tour in Old Havana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where we had the opportunity to learn about the history and importance of: Cathedral of Old Havana, Square of Arms, Palace of the General Captains, San Francisco Square, Old Plaza, and the Fortress of San Carlos. At each of these sites we interacted with Cubans who are caring for these historic places.

In the Museum of Revolution in the old Presidential Palace we explored the history of the most important political and social event of Cuba during the 20th Century, The Cuban Revolution. In the Museum we learned about the Granma Memorial, one of the most important symbols of the Revolution. This is the boat that brought Fidel, Che, and a few dozens of revolutionaries back to Cuba to start the revolution. The exhibit shows other important vehicles used during the revolution.
