The former palace of Count Brunet, which first floor was built in 1740 and the second one ended in 1808, exhibits a wide variety of furniture and other decorative arts owned by the bourgeoisie of Trinidad during the 19 th century. The building itself faithfully represents the style of Cuban colonial architecture.

Romantic Museum is located in Trinidad
As if it were stagnant in time, Trinidad gives the visitor the extraordinary charms of a vivacious museum-city embedded between the sea and the mountain. Trinidad comprises an area of 1 165Km2 and it is located to the center-south of Cuba, facing the Caribbean Sea, in the mountainous skirts of Guamuahaya or Escambray Mountains, belonging to the province of Sancti Spíritus. You can get there by roads that connect it with the rest of the country, and it has an airport for small and medium size airplanes.
Proclaimed World Heritage by UNESCO in 1988, the old Villa de la Santísima Trinidad founded in the 16th century shows togeher with its multiple architectural values, a wealth of traditions and cultures where Hispanic and African traits are combined. A culture of craftsmanship and ceramics has been transmitted notably from generation to generation. In this area the gentle atmosphere of small cities reigns, where the creative capacity and their residents' wisdom have contributed to preserve from the past their most important values.
Together with historical and cultural values of the territory, the attractiveness of the mountainous Escambray area, its beaches and the beauties of its sea bottoms, as well as its people's hospitality, are the particular features of this city. Trinidad is one of those cities that invites you to travel all around them. Its museums, squares and stone-paved streets make it possible to go back in time. Once in the territory you are invited to know the symbolic Manaca- Iznaga Tower, from where you can see the Valley of the Sugar Mills; Ancón and María Aguilar beaches, Caburní Waterfall, the Cave of the Skulls and Zaza Lake, host of periodic trout fishing tournaments. To visit its nearby keys among which Key Blanco of Casilda stands out are of great interest for those who are keen in the art of deep diving.

Romantic Museum (Brunet Palace)
It is located in the old Palace of the Count Brunet, where there is s sample of the furniture and decorative arts with which the aristocracy of Trinidad fit out their mansions. Jewels. Porcelain. Silverware. Paintings. Sculptures. Decorative elements that belonged to the Spanish nobility.
Another stunning colonial mansion, the Museo Romantico is packed with 18th-century antiques and gives a fascinating glimpse into the lives of wealthy slave-owners during the town's mid-colonial 18th-century period. Located within the Palacio Brunet, which dates back to the 1740s, the Romantic Museum was established in the 1970s. An onsite shop provide souvenirs in the form of photographs and English-language books.
Museo Romantico is a great museum with authentic antiques and furniture on display in a gorgeous 1800's colonial mansion. It's a very worthwhile museum to see
“Pretty insight into the way the rich lived ”
We were granted our own English guide for a group of three on tour of Cuba which was excellent - and didn't happen at other places. But basically this is a tour of old western artefacts held at the museum in roughly a layout of how a house in the 1800s would have been. There was an extra charge if... More
“Just O.K. ”
We liked the building and its location but when it came to the staff that was another thing! In almost every room there was a lady that wanted to explain everything but either to get a tip or to sell us something that she had made. After a while,it got on our nerves!
“Days of the past ”
In Plaza mayor a very well preserved colonial house (still renovating the paintings of some walls) of a wealthy family. Atmosphere of another era. What to say about the delicately painted walls, the furniture, the every day utensils and the works of art? You should see it by yourself with guide or not!
“Good furnished ”
One of the best museum in Cuba. Has a lot of old furniture and a lot of interesting things. You can also see the bathroom and the kitchen with dishes. From the balcony there is very nice view of the city, the hills and the sea.
“Museum of Romance ”
gives you an idea of the way of living in those days (if you were rich), the items used in the houses, the way the houses were built. It is worthwhile visiting this museum
“Wonderful old colonial house ”
We really enjoyed our visit to this restored old house built for a sugar baron. We arrived early to beat the tour groups and had the house virtually to ourselves. Some of the staff speak some English and are only to happy to explain some more about the house's history and the family that lived there. It is filled with... More
“A treasure Trove ”
This is an amazing place full of amazing things! You could happily spend hours just browsing if you could , rivals any antique shop in UK
“Beautiful period house ”
Get here early before 11 as tourist buses tend to fill up the house. Fascinating period style home with wonderful furniture. Close to the plaza so it is easy to see the museums (of which there are many) within a morning.
“a beautiful place ”
A museum which recreates a colonial house with beautiful furniture and objects. It is well worth a visit!
“Astonishing collection! ”
We stumbled upon this museum which was packed with priceless objets d'art, and were escorted personally by an English-speaking, knowledgable and friendly guide. The most striking thing perhaps was that there is nothing (apart from your own good manners) to stop you touching these historic pieces. Guides are also artisans who will discreetly offer you the opportunity to purchase some... More
