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

If you are in Trinidad you have to visit this house! It was very interesting to see how a Cuban wealthy family lived around the 1800's. Beautifully furnished, jewels, porcelain, silverware and paintings throughout the house. Also good photo opportunity from the upstairs windows and from the balcony of the square and the city. At the back there is a... More

One of the best museum in Cuba. Has a lot of old furniture and a lot of interesting things. You can also see the bathroom and the kitchen with dishes. From the balcony there is very nice view of the city, the hills and the sea.

gives you an idea of the way of living in those days (if you were rich), the items used in the houses, the way the houses were built. It is worthwhile visiting this museum

Some of the staff speak some English and are only to happy to explain some more about the house's history and the family that lived there. It is filled with... More
