Fodor's Review

Inspired by the battle to repatriate Elián González, the 7-year-old rescued off the coast of Florida in 1999, the Museo a la Batalla de Ideas is a history of Cuba's battle for independence. Everything from the two English cannonballs fired in 1756 to the cross given to Elián by Reverend John Brown Campbell traces Cuba's struggle to achieve and maintain its national sovereignty.
