The museum contains a collection of items that represent the time period and status of the Brunet family. The rooms have been well maintained; the decorative pieces are lovely. Of particular interest is the huge kitchen and the upstairs toilet.

This is a strange museum staffed by enthusiastic workers who know about every piece in it. It is astonishing the wealth that is in here both and now and at the time. The guides are good too and we were lucky to hit this after the masses had left so you could actually see something!

The museum gives a fine overview of Cuban furnishings and decoration. The member of staff who insisted (not in a pushy way) on showing us around was really interested, enthusiastic and informative, and tried really hard to use the English she knew to help our poor Spanish.

This was one of the better Museums we had been to. It was very interesting with lots of lovely artifacts from all over the world. We had a very good guide and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Very reasonable entrance fee. Just be aware that there are a lot of steps if you have any mobility problems.

an intersting guided tour takes you through the house of a french nobility family who lived here, and its exquisite furnitures and household stuff. look out from the windows to observe unique town views.

Lovely small museum which felt more like a rather grand home. The furniture, porcelain and glass were all interesting and gave a real feel as to how the more affluent in Trinidad used to live. The staff didn't appear to speak much English, so our guide was extremely useful.

Very nice collection of artifacts left behind from another generation of local families. We had an English speaking guide that made it interesting to learn about each of the pieces and the history of Trinidad.

It's really nice colonial house. The whole tout take 20-30 minutes. We've liked the kitchen. You should take a tour guide for a little tip.

Romance Museum was interesting to walk through, although it would have been more interesting had we arranged a tour guide (which some groups had) to give us better insight into the history of the place. At face value, it was worthwhile just seeing the decor and old-timey luxury of the place. Overall, a nice way to spend 20 minutes.
