Interesting house and artefacts. Wow view from the top of the tower!

This is a lovely restored villa with artifacts and furniture on display. I don't mean to be disrespectful in the slightest but none of these things are displayed or conserved to... read more

The majority of the museums on Cuba are quite small and poor of monuments and exhibitions. But you can go there and spend about 1 hour

We had read a lot about this place but no one had mentioned that just a year ago a woman fell thru the second floor breaking her leg so it's been closed since then. You would think the websites would update the status but no.

This is a lovely restored villa with artifacts and furniture on display. I don't mean to be disrespectful in the slightest but none of these things are displayed or conserved to a modern standard and so in some ways it is disappointing and it very sparse. The courtyard is lovely and full of lizards of various sizes which are not... More

This lovely old villa gives one a glimpse into the lives of the very wealthy sugar barons. The tower was closed so we missed the views. There were several ladies selling their embroidered linens. This museum is definitely worth seeing.

I broke away from the tour group to slip into this intriguing mansion and was delighted to get a one-on-one tour of this two-storied Colonial house outfitted with the best money could buy from heavy, ornate furnishings to paintings to china, a feast for the eye. On the 2nd floor the guide threw open the green slatted doors and invited... More

interesting and worth the visit. Gives some history and information about romance in a different culture. Also, may give you an idea for a romantic evening or something romantic to do with your significant other

An interesting and prettily furnished house with a good story regarding the owners. Didn't get chance to climd up the tower because of the queue. There are lots of museums in this pretty unspoilt town.

Experience the architecture and ornate household furnishings this colonial town is noted for. Best museum in a city known as the City of Museums. Throughout the Trinidad areas, you'll learn of the money that flowed from sugar plantations. At this museum, you'll see the lifestyle it supported.
