I loved coming here. The house is beautifully restored and so is the furniture. I loved the lacework on the beds, the place settings on the dinner table. It's a place to visit in Trinidad if I you like beautiful design.

You don't go to Trinidad for its museum, this for sure. At least here it's possible to see an old rich house.
Nothing special, but not even so bad.
The 15 ladies who work there monitoring the 4 rooms are nice and talkative.

This place is beautiful historical home. This is an interesting and priceless place to experience the former colonial style of home furnishing. It mostly has works on display from 1830 to 1860, and shows rare objects such as a bed made of bronze and mother of pearl, a French wardrobe from 1852, a desk belonging to Maria Theresa of Austria and a glass display case from Meissen. It is also possible to see fine China porcelain and crystal belonging to some of the richest families from the Romantic period. We were extremely pleasantly surprised by the beauty and richness of the museum.

Like many of the museums in Trinidad it isn't a huge building, it is conveniently located with a few other museums and only costs 1-2 CUC and sometimes extra for pictures.

Many of the museums in Trinidad have some English writing or a guide to help you out.

Be aware in this museum it does have guides, they do expect tips and they will try to sell you things they have made privately.

There are some very nice views from the upper floors so a good opportunity to get some nice pictures of Trinidad and the surrounding area.

This museum overlooks Trinidad's main square and has an excellent exhibition of romantic style porcelain, glass, paintings and decorative furniture which belonged to the Conde de Brunet family of Spanish nobility, dating from 1830. Feel free to ask a lot of questions of the workers stationed in various rooms. It is difficult to imagine how these treasures survived after so many years because when a hurricane happens, they "close the windows" - no other means of preservation are used. You'll be amazed! This museum is a "WOW!" There is a one time fee to take pictures.

This is a lovely house with great artifacts collected from various families. A guide showed me round and her English was better than mine. Really lovely.

The Museo Romantica is a beautiful building with great architecture and incorporating wonderful materials - take a good look at the interior doors. Yes, the guides are perhaps a touch over enthusiastic, but there are many antiques to enthuse about and the guides do warrant a small reward. My initial interest was piqued by an unusually large piece of Moser glass, but there was a lot more left to study and admire. The views are pretty good and the building demonstrates how the rich plantation owners lived. There are some interesting paintings for sale on the ground floor at the back of the courtyard.

I had never been here after many visits to Trinidad. It is an interesting colonial home with furnishings from the same period as the original owner took everything back to Spain. Interesting view of life in colonial Trinidad.

This is interesting museum in the center of Trinidad. No regrets that we visited it. One of example how rich peolpe were living in colonial times. Interesting building, nice rooms with furniture, a little bit Trinidad history. Must climbe the tower - beautiful view of Trinidad.
You can buy souvenirs here as well. Nice women working in the tower souvenir shop. She helped me to chose cds with cuban music. No regrets for her's recommendations!
