I visited in November 2015 and was the only person in the gallery that day. The museum offers a mix of art—there was an exhibit on 19th-century watercolors and the view of Trinidad—natural history, and history/social studies.

As visitors to Trinidad we found this the best place to get an overview of the history, geology, people, economy and culture.

If you like museums, you'll likely find this one pretty interesting, as they cover quite a bit! There's plenty of information on the founding of the country, some of the wildlife, etc.

When you visit this Museum you are able to see some of the Costumes on exhibition that were worn by Masqueraders at Carnival times gone past. This is in addition to other artifacts that are on display
lovely building and some good exhibits but sadly gallery was closed. could do with spending some money on the place. supposed to be best attraction in this historic capital
