Museo Histórico Naval Nacional information
Across the railway tracks five blocks northwest of the Parque Martí is the eye-catching location of this rose-pink museum, dating from 1933. It's housed in the former headquarters of the Distrito Naval del Sur, and approached by a wide drive flanked with armaments dating from different eras.
It was here in September 1957 that a group of sailors and civilians staged an unsuccessful uprising against the Batista government. The revolt is the central theme of the museum. The ramparts offer great bay views.
