The National Museum and Art Gallery


The National Museum and Art Gallery of Trinidad and Tobago is the country's most important museum. It displays depictions of national festivals, Carnival, life during the World War II and artifacts from the country's earliest settlers, the Amerindians. There are also displays by leading local and international artists. The museum was established in 1892 and was originally called the Royal Victoria Institute, as it was built as part of the preparation for Queen Victoria's jubilee.
