Time Out says

This museum has a small but interesting collection of ephemera and memorabilia relating to the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961, when a small brigade of Cuban exiles in Miami was trained by the CIA as part of a covert operation to invade the island and restore US interests. But the 1,300-strong force, known as Brigade 2506, was met by the Cuban army soon after landing at the Bahía de Cochinos (Bay of Pigs). Almost 100 were killed and the rest—including the father of pop singer Gloria Estefan—were taken prisoner. Perhaps the most notable exhibit is a Brigade 2506 flag held up by President John F. Kennedy during a speech at the Orange Bowl in 1962, welcoming the survivors back to Miami.
