This is the home of a sugar plantation barron, from centuries past. Unfortunately, the furniture, paintings and other decorative items are not from the original home, but are from the period. It was fantastic to take a look back into the past. There are guides who will show you around and tell you where all the pieces and paintings are... More

Un-expected quantity of really beautiful objects d'art and furniture! Don't miss it. A look into pre-revolution life, at least for some.

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.

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.
