Museum of the Revolution and Granma Memorial
The luxurious mansion that was the residence of the Presidents of the Republic between 1920 and 1960 now holds the Museum of the Revolution, devoted to the national rebellion of the Cuban people.
Its halls contain a detailed panorama of the country’s struggles for national sovereignty in a historical discourse supported by abundant testimonial material made up of photographs, original documents, mock- ups, weapons, personal belongings of revolutionary fighters, recordings, videos and films.
Adjacent to the Museum is the “Granma Memorial,” the immense glass case holding the yacht used by Fidel Castro and over 80 revolutionary fighters to return to Cuba from theirexile in Mexico. The landing took place on December 2, 1957, at a point on the southern coast of Oriente Province, and that was the.beginning of the Liberation War in the Sierra Maestra Mountains.
