“A must”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

When you visit Trinidad ,amazing architecture of an old building which has been restored ,with a lovely courtyard .Many if the original features have been kept and it is now used as a museum .The exhibits are well displayed with friendly staff .
An interesting feature is the tower which gives views across the city .

“Don't miss the view!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Very well presented museum set out with courtyard in the centre. Gives a good indication of historic grand life with lots of original features and exhibits on display.

There is a tower which provides excellent panoramic views of the town so don't be put off by the very tight, steep stairs. They are very tight and not suitable for those who are unsteady on their feet.

“Excellent museum”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This lovely building has been restored and houses some interesting artefacts from a bygone era. Set around a central courtyard the house is cool in the heat. Do climb the rather rickety steps up the tower ,when you reach the top the views over the roof tops of the city.

“Splendid house and a wonderfull view of the town”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

One of the most interesting attactions in Trinidad. It was the ancient house of mayors and it has some interesting mudejar works in the ceiling. Try to go there at sunset, when you can have an amazing view of the sun setting at the sea.

“Gorgeous house, beautiful collection and amazing view from the tower!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is another lovely museum in Trinidad. The building itself is very beautiful and in great condition. It has a patio where you will see many of Trinidad's lizards running around. The collection of furniture and items is very interesting. It is definitely worth going up to the tower as the view over the entire city is amazing! The staff was sometimes a bit pushy but nothing dramatic. The entrance fee was 2CUC per person and an extra fee of 1CUC in order to use your camera, Definitely worth visiting!
