The old centre of Havana is beautiful, and they've obviously spent a bit of money smartening the place up to attract the tourists. A block or two away the streets become quite shabby in comparison. The cathedral is small, but is set on a lovely little square where you can sit out at a cafe and soak up the atmosphere.
We visited the museum of the revolution, which is a must see for anyone interested in Cuban history. An understanding of written Spanish is helpful, since only a minority of the labels on the exhibits have been translated into English. The museum is fairly large, and we were flagging a little towards the end.
The Havana Club rum museum was a bit of a disappointment. You pay quite a lot for a ten minute tour, which was not massively informative, and then get a single sip of free rum at the end. It's one of those things that you probably have to do when you're in Cuba, but it's not really worth the money, in my opinion.
