Havana.- The museum dedicated to the Spanish-Cuban-American War, in eastern Santiago de Cuba province, reopened after painstaking restoration works.

The facility, located in the outskirts of the city of Santiago de Cuba, has incorporated new elements linked to ground and sea battles in the 19th century.

The museum’s three halls deal with antecedents, the war and its consequences, making emphasis on the events that took place in 1898, when the United States interfered in the war between Cubans and the Spanish Crown.

The museum exhibits cannons, different kinds of weapons, torpedoes, objects from sunken ships of Admiral Cervera’s Fleet, communication devices, and a model showing the sites where the main battles were waged.

US forces landed on Siboney and Daiquiri beaches, and battles took place in Las Gusimas, El Caney and San Juan. The armistice and capitulation of the city were signed under the Tree of Peace, near San Juan.
