To truly understand Dominican culture and society, a visit here is highly recommended.
An institution that studies what it means to be Dominican.
This four-floor museum on Plaza de la Cultura documents the birth and evolution of Dominican culture and civilisation through a series of rooms whose displays explore the different historical stages of this country and its people, from the Quisqueya of earliest pre-Columbian times through the period of colonisation. Tribal artifacts include items great and small – from tools to recreational items. As long as you’re here, you may also want to nip into the nearby Museum of Modern Art. Taken together, these two offer very different but equally compelling windows into Dominican culture.
