Lots of stunning artefacts
Mar 2020
Very well maintained and crammed with lots of china, chandeliers and furniture to be jealous of. These people knew how to live and have the finer things in life! The local guide was also charming and very knowledgeable - she didn't speak English but our tour guide was able to translate for us.
There are many women guarding the rooms and you do feel their eyes constantly on you, but better this than having to close it to the public due to the idiot minority who damage or steal things.
Definitely a must do visit if in Trinidad.

Not so bad
Mar 2020 • Couples
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.

Beautiful building
Dec 2019
I did not visit the museum inside, but the building is very nice, and one of the main sites in Trinidad.

Beautiful house and furniture.
Dec 2019
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.

Excellent Guide Good Museum
Dec 2019
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.

It is a building very old and traditional very well decorated. From the first floor you have a very nice view of the main square.

Interesting museum in the center of Trinidad
Mar 2019 • Couples
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!

Nicest Museum Close to Plaza Mayor
Apr 2019 • Solo
There are several museum located close to the Plaza Mayor. This is a restored Cuban mansion with lots of furniture, ceramics and chandeliers. One of the museum workers acted as a guide when I was there and I paid her a small tip.

I found that this was the nicest museum of the lot of museums in this area. If you only want to see one of them, this is it. (I of course looked at them all!). There are good public toilets in this museum.

Enjoyable visit with a knowledgeable guide
Mar 2019 • Couples
It was a real joy to visit this museum and to be shown around by a clever and friendly guide, who was happy to share her knowledge and engaged with us in a lively way. She wanted to know our views on the exhibits. I think it is closed every Monday so you may want to check on its opening times and days. The furniture and ornaments on display are a great insight to what colonial life was like on the island

Museo Romatico is an excellent place to visit
Mar 2019 • Couples
Museo Romatico is an excellent place to visit. It is an elegant Cuban home demonstrating the stylish elegance and wealth of sugar merchants. I understand that the sugar baron built the house for one of his daughters. We had a guide for our visit and we paid her a small tip - well worth it as she spoke very good English and was a minefield of information.

There are lots of the highest quality furniture and artefacts from across the world - many with stories behind them.
