The Moruga Museum has been established for the preservation, education and promotion of the heritage, history, anthropology, culture and lives of the diverse origins of peoples constituting some of the major populations of the world, who have been impressed upon by Western Civilization. Presenting new finds and research from the historical past of the peoples, who are forever evolving is an ongoing task that we have been entrusted with.
The Museum extends its initiatives beyond the borders of the Moruga Region and the collection continues to be diverse. Although a new institution, the museum has been able to make an indelible impact on the lives of the people, not just in Moruga, but at the same time, the rest of Trinidad and Tobago and the world.
The Museum has already received Vatican Silver Medal from Pope Francis, making it the first Institution to receive such an honor from one of the world’s most profound organisations.
The Museum was founded and opened by Moruga's own, Eric Lewis, laudably, one of the Youngest Museum founders the World has ever seen. To date the Moruga Museum is not yet to be funded by the Republican State of Trinidad and Tobago.
The Museum continues to carry out its objectives with limited resources serving the needs of researchers, university students and primary and elementary educational institution.
The Moruga Museum has also been one of the Major driving forces in the discovery and preservation of Archaeological sites in Trinidad.
