  • I enjoyed this site, seeing the actual items preserved from its original form. Have tips ready so that the employees posted in the building can take photos for you. It's really worth it.  more »
  • One can almost feel Hemingway's presence in every room. It gave a feeling of what life was like back in the 50s. I am very glad I made the effort to go.  more »

  • Ernest Hemingway Cuban home high above habana/Havana beautiful home well presented free museum
  • I had a fantastic time here. So much history. Make sure to visit the tower office. When I got home I decided to do a little research on the typewriter there. I found an article about someone trying to locate the one his wife gave him. After contacting the museum to find out if they knew where it was they looked through the stored items and found it in a box. It is now in place one the desk in the tower.
