“Splendid house and a wonderfull view of the town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

One of the most interesting attactions in Trinidad. It was the ancient house of mayors and it has some interesting mudejar works in the ceiling. Try to go there at sunset, when you can have an amazing view of the sun setting at the sea.

“Gorgeous house, beautiful collection and amazing view from the tower!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is another lovely museum in Trinidad. The building itself is very beautiful and in great condition. It has a patio where you will see many of Trinidad's lizards running around. The collection of furniture and items is very interesting. It is definitely worth going up to the tower as the view over the entire city is amazing! The staff was sometimes a bit pushy but nothing dramatic. The entrance fee was 2CUC per person and an extra fee of 1CUC in order to use your camera, Definitely worth visiting!

“Lots of beautiful stuff to see that you can actually get close to.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We enjoyed the trip around the museum. There is a lot of stuff to see, furniture, ceramics, statuary, the painted walls, ceilings, chandeliers. If you like seeing antiques in period cultural settings you will love this place.
