  • It is the Museum more miserable that I have visited in my life in which the parts referred to, is a collection of eclectic of Antiquities and stuffed animals that does line, pieces without sheet or bad photocopies... clearly gives it hurts. The mansion (-not the 'Museum' in itself) is beautiful! Buuut... the view from the tower is spectacular, the best of Trinity, and that compensates for the sad thing of the Museum

  • Good content of pre-Columbian and colonial history. With the right information. Economic, spacious and good care.

  • Museum itself is quite okay - nothing breathtaking though. A highlight of the visit is the view from the tower - a must-see point in Trinidad tour. You will get to see above the roofs of houses - splendid view!
