This is an amazing place full of amazing things! You could happily spend hours just browsing if you could , rivals any antique shop in UK

Get here early before 11 as tourist buses tend to fill up the house. Fascinating period style home with wonderful furniture. Close to the plaza so it is easy to see the museums (of which there are many) within a morning.

A museum which recreates a colonial house with beautiful furniture and objects. It is well worth a visit!

We liked the building and its location but when it came to the staff that was another thing! In almost every room there was a lady that wanted to explain everything but either to get a tip or to sell us something that she had made. After a while,it got on our nerves!

In Plaza mayor a very well preserved colonial house (still renovating the paintings of some walls) of a wealthy family. Atmosphere of another era. What to say about the delicately painted walls, the furniture, the every day utensils and the works of art? You should see it by yourself with guide or not!

We stumbled upon this museum which was packed with priceless objets d'art, and were escorted personally by an English-speaking, knowledgable and friendly guide. The most striking thing perhaps was that there is nothing (apart from your own good manners) to stop you touching these historic pieces. Guides are also artisans who will discreetly offer you the opportunity to purchase some... More

This place is made all the more special by the reverence with which the guide takes you around this beautiful od house, room-by-room. He is softly spoken and speaks nice and slowly for the Spanish impaired (like us!). SO pretty, and you could get a really good feel for what Trinidad must have been like in it's heyday. I would...

An exceedingly lovely museum, loads of objects d 'art. Lovely French opal glass and a fantastic array of period furniture. Well informed and helpful guide. Only gripe is that one had to leave everything one was carrying in a communal locker with no lock, doubtless this was being watched over but worrying just the same.

Enjoyed the visit. Would recommend doing a guided tour. We had a friendly and knowledgeable English speaking guide that made the visit a lot more interesting. The view from the upper floor is great.

I approached the Romantic Museum with some scepticism but in the end was won over by the nicely arranged furniture and other objects, as well as by the great views from the building. We had a Spanish-speaking guide (2 cuc, not included in the entry fee), which made the visit really interesting and enjoyable. Unfortunately, most of the furniture is... More
