  • A beautiful Museum, which gives an insight into the life of a wealthy sugar barons family. In addition to the various rooms, there's a great atrium and rewarded the climb up the tower with a great view over Trinidad. The rise is slightly adventurous, because the upper part consists of a narrow spiral staircase... But it's worth really :) Below and on the middle of the Tower there to buy some tickets and souvenirs. Toilets are also available. Absolutely worth visiting if you are in Trinidad...

  • The side Museum is very disappointing, the point of view of the tower is very nice but should still get there. impossible for people with some disabilities (scale) or the claustrophobic (small stairwell). Attention also in cameras and camera, you must pay more (5 Cuc) back them and free riders beware!

  • The only interest of this museum lies in his tour which allows you to have a wonderful view on the city... Attention, ascension is perilous (small wooden staircase). Do not get dizzy!
