We spent less than hour here and felt it worthwhile. If you are walking up to Queen's park, you pass right by. In an historic building, the displays include art, history and natural history exhibits. The information on the early slave trade was sobering. Just...More

This was a good national Museum in the heart of port of Spain. The best part of it is it was free to get into. You can tell they don't have a lot of money to run it, but they're doing the best they can...More

This museum and art gallery is surprisingly small and modest, considering it is the 'national' museum and art gallery. It seems that the displays were created a long time ago and that there has been little funding available for upkeep and development. The art gallery...More
