Sights to See: The National Museum & Art Gallery of Trinidad & Tobago, Port of Spain, Trinidad


The National Museum & Art Gallery of Trinidad & Tobago  117 Frederick St., Port of Spain, (868) 623-5941.  Tu-Sat 10am-6pm.  Free.  Though the exterior of its 1887 Dutch-gabled German-Renaissance-style building is modest, this museum holds interesting collections.  The first floor features special exhibitions and natural history exhibits (you can see the magnificent blue Emperor butterfly here).  Upstairs, the national art collection displays work by leading local artists, including paintings by Trinidad’s first major artist, Michel-Jean Cazabon (1813-88).
