although the historical center of trinidad is itself an archituctural museum, there is importance to visit the museum in order to understand some concepts of trinidad's houses and neighburhood

The museum is located in Plaza Mayor and it is a nice example of colonial building. Not being very interested in the Cuban archeology I had a quick look from the windows just to look at the interior of the building more than to the...More

The museum cost a dollar and was probably worth that. The collection is not particularly interesting or unusual and it was not particularly well displayed. However, it was raining hard when we went in and we were happy to spend the time inside!

This place won't keep you busy for hours but for 1cuc it's worth a look in. Assorted antiquities found mostly during rennovation work. A bit of the history of the slave and sugar trades here also.

Humboldt once stayed in this private mansion now converted in a public museum with exhibits and time diagrams which represent Cuba's distant past and the multiple layers of Native Cultures which inhabited the Island before Columbus. There are also many objects from the colonial period,...More

The Archaeological Museum (Museo de Arqueologia) is a very small exhibition. Two rooms at the upper floor were even not accessible. And all labels and legends are written in Spanish only. It is at several sites described as a Natural History Museum. But that’s not...More
