If you can only visit one museum during your trip to Trinidad and Tobago, make it the National Museum & Art Gallery. Here, you'll get a little bit of everything: history, culture, and art. Exhibits include a detailed history of the islands that includes artifacts from the Amerindians, a display about the Carnival festival, and a selection of the finest artworks to come out of the islands. Though the museum was originally built for Queen Victoria's visit in 1892, today it is open to the public, and a great way to learn about the islands.
The museum offers guests tours of the exhibits where they will guide you through the different areas and describe the importance of each item. You can also feel free to ask them any questions that you might have.
You may enjoy staying in Port of Spain if you plan on visiting National Museum & Art Gallery, as visitors to this region of Trinidad and Tobago will have easy museum access for the duration of their trip. If you'd like to stay somewhere near the museum, you'll have a good selection of nearby accommodations to choose from.
