We visited this as part of our walking tour of the town. We were amazed that a lot of the exhibits were just on open table or displays which meant exhibits could easily be stolen or knocked onto the floor. Our guide spoke English but...More

This Museum is housed in a very beautiful colonial home. Everything is well-displayed with captions in clear, moderately easy to read Spanish (some translates simply, or bring a translation app). Guides stay close-by and will offer some explanation; be prepared, bring a friend with basic...More

Take the opportunity to use the very good guide, some very interesting exhibits but need more explanation than just the labels.

The artefacts are very limited as the original people were eradicated by disease and slavery. There are some vestiges of their lives which are fascinating. However, on the whole the artefacts from colonial life are what we could find in our local places and museums...More

We weren't as badly pestered by staff here as we had been at other museums. There is little in English, but the Spanish wasn't too hard to make out. The captions are not very complicated. Two exhibits struck me very strongly. There is a recreation...More

An interesting look at the archaeology of the Trinidad area. Don't touch the artifacts that are sitting open on the shelves! You will be closely (about a foot away) monitored for the rest of your visit by two to three attendants! Not much information given...More

The exhibition is fairly small with no English translations. It only costs 1 CUC entry but you have to pay another 1 CUC to take photos (which is nothing really, so not a complaint, just an observation).

Not impressive but interesting to see how wealthy colonials lived and some artefacts of pre-European settlement. Takes only 30 mins a guide makes it understandable and worth a tip

Guidebooks indicate that this museum has been closed for some time – it is now open but hardly worth the effort. A few rooms on the main floor of this 18th century mansion are open with displays – one documents the history of the house...More
