Trinidad and Tobago Sights

Kimme Sculpture Museum

Updated 03/04/2014

Fodor's Review

The diminutive and eccentric German-born sculptress Luise Kimme fell in love with the form of Tobagonians and devoted her life to capturing them in her sculptures. Her pieces can exceed 12 feet in height and are often wonderfully whimsical. Much of her work is done in wood (none of it local), but there are many bronze pieces as well. Ms Kimme passed away in 2013 but her work remains on permanent display at her former home. The museum itself is a turreted structure with

a commanding view of the countryside. Most locals refer to it as "The Castle." There are numerous signs in Mt. Irvine directing visitors to the museum.
