    I could not believe my eyes with the quality and the number of significant artefacts here. This museum should be a National tourist site however most tourists don't enter in here because they don't even know it exists! There should be a yellow sign with an arrow that directs people here. I was truly amazed by this place. MUST SEE!!!

    The Guamuhaya Archeology Museum is a research and educational institution located next to the Plaza Mayor of Trinidad, in the central province of Sancti Spíritus, Cuba. This institution is located in an 18th-century building historically known as Casa Padrón. Founded on May 15, 1976 as a museum specialized in the stage of prehistoric Cuba, it offers visitors an overview of life in Cuba from pre-Columbian times until the conquest. History As the architect Joaquín E. Weiss writes in his book The Cuban Colonial Architecture, in this house Baron Alejandro de Humboldt was present, who at the beginning of the 19th century attended a gathering here where all the high sugar aristocracy was gathered and bourgeois of Trinidad. This property underwent an interesting process of adaptation to the variable hierarchy process that occurred in the urban spaces of the area where it is located. Its main facade originally overlooked the Calle Real del Jigüe, in accordance with the hierarchy that this road had until the beginning of the 18th century. In the next century, when the old Church square becomes Plaza Mayor, after a process of reorganization of public spaces and urban layout, the house turns its face towards it and is completely remodeled by its owner at that time, Mrs. Ángela Borrell y Padrón, who significantly modifies and embellishes the former abode of Juan Marín; a neoclassicist portal is added, and its interior walls receive pictorial treatment. Collections The Museum shows the most representative of the findings and archaeological works of the region made from 1972 to the present. Exhibits chronologically, through 8 rooms, objects belonging to the aborigines settled in the south-central region of the Island of Cuba during the pre-Columbian stage, as well as material testimonies of the colonial period of very varied origin and invoice, coming from the Trinidad city and the Valley of the Wits. The sample includes human bone remains, exposed for didactic purposes; texts and illustrations that complement the information and enrich the compression of the testimonial objects. Provides in the specialty of pre-Hispanic and colonial archeology, advice, lectures, conferences, specialized visits, tours of the Valle de los Ingenios and the city; It offers cultural entertainment activities to the general public, inside and outside the headquarters.

    I liked the museum a lot, it is housed in the "Casa Padrón", it is believed that it was the home of Hernán Cortés before his departure to conquer Mexico. It has an interesting collection of minerals, petrography, and pre-Columbian pieces. The entrance costs 2CUC
