Cuba - Museum of the Revolution

The Museum of the Revolution in Havana is housed, in fine irony, in the former Presidential Palace that was previously occupied by Fulgencio Batista. The building is beautiful, with many classical touches; much of the decoration was provided by Tiffany of New York. Good descriptions of the building and its history are here and here.
