This museum was full of some very interesting exhibits. It made one realise what connections ( and wealth) some of the people in Cuba once had.

This is an old colonial mansion situated right on the Plaza mayor. There is a 2 CUC entry and another 1 CUC for photos. I wasn't sure if I was going to take photos so arranged to pay as I left if I did take any. The case is filled with furnishings of a (several) wealthy families. Very interesting to... More

This museum is situated by the central square in Trinidad. Museum is placed in the mansion of a wealthy family of Trinidad and tells about the atmosphere of a rich plantation-owning family living, showing furniture, porcelain, portraits etc etc. Not every exhibit was belonging to just this family, and museum is a sort of collection from whole the colonial Trinidad....

Everyone told us to see this museum and so we did. It's a dozen rooms in a lovely building with domestic furniture and crockery laid out in each room. Some fantastic pieces but mainly what you would see in a Cuban home. Intereting for a quick visit.

The house and its furnishings are in excellent condition, thus giving us real flavor of the lifestyle of the wealthy sugar baron. If you are not Spanish-speaking, though, there doesn't seem to be a way to learn additional information to help the house "come alive."

A small museum on Plaza Mayor that lives up to its name. A beautiful collection of C19 and early C20th furniture and artifacts arranged as if someone was still living in the house. Only spoiled by the assistants who wanted to sell you textiles. Interestingly when I went back for a second look in late afternoon and there were no... More

The fine china and decorations mean that you have to leave your bags at the desk - and then it's a trip around an old colonial house - slaves on the ground floor and the owners above. Well maintained and looked after
