This is a small museum on one side of the main square, which is full of interest – in my case the visit was greatly enhanced by the appearance of a guide, Luis (his sister worked at the ticket desk), who gave me an enthusiastic and personal tour of the museum. Ask if he's around when you make your visit - there's not a lot to see, but that's what makes this museum so good. No overload, just full of interest, and perfect for a 30 minute visit.

We were offered an English speaking guide on our visit here and she brought the displays to life. She could give us the history, the stories, and the insights of the otherwise static displays. And after, she walked us directly to a great restaurant for lunch. After our visit here, I observed many of these features throughout the city.

The museum is located on old Trinidad's (small) main square and worth taking a half hour or so to go thru. There is good signage. Be sure to see the toilet (patented by Thomas Crapper) and the complicated shower. The museum is housed in a colonial mansion, which is interesting in its own right.

This is a fairly small museum. Had it not been part of our tour, I am not sure I would have gone in. It was interesting to see how the homes were constructed in Colonial times, but frankly it wasn't't that impressive. If you travel a lot, you see this type of museum in many places.

worth visiting along with the many other museums in the square - cheap entry, mostly spanish spoken so ideally you need a guide, interesting insight into colonial cuba. As with most building the outside looks pretty good and has clearly been restored not so much the inside which looks a little tired.

The Romance Museum was undergoing massive renovations and was closed so we visited this Archtecture Museum . It was very interesting with a good collection of European china ornaments and glass. A knowledgeable woman showed us around, the plumbing system was formidable for nearly 120 years ago and the architect's shower room was like a mediaeval torture room!! An interesting insight into life at the turn of the century.

I visited the architecture museum while on a day trip to Trinidad from Cayo Santa Maria. It was a very interesting place if you are into architecture. there are some beautiful pieces there. You pay 1 peso if you want to take pictures which I opted to do. The outside garden is also very nice and we saw some sort of lizard hiding in amongst the greenery. It was an extrememly hot day when i was there and I felt like I didnt take all the info in because I was exhausted from the heat.

Deginitely a worthwhile place to visit in Trinidad.

Monday, we visited the architectural museum which was quite interesting. We acquired an unofficial guide but she was quite informative and happy with the tip of 2 CUCs.
