Altos de Chavón Regional Archaeological Museum

A worthy display of Hispaniola's pre-Columbian civilisation.

Part of the elaborate mock 16th-century-Mediterranean-style village outside the south-coast city of La Romana, this outwardly modest-looking museum of archaeology (located behind the Church of San Estanislao) provides an exceptional and fairly comprehensive overview of Dominican history, with special attention to life before the arrival of the Spaniards through its collection of more than 3,000 artifacts reflecting a variety of cultures, religions, and lifestyles.
