This place is beautiful. Very Louis the 16th esque. But I came to see Trujillo's office and it was not there. :-(. Still enjoyed touring the museum. Also, I read somewhere that it cost 50 pesos to get it in… WRONG. It costs 100 pesos per person.

A lovely, well kept museum. Our tour guide provided an informative, friendly and well humoured experience for us; reading the group well. The visit was well paced, we weren't rushed and I didn't feel that we were hanging around unnecessarily either. Questions were quickly and appropriately answered. I'd certainly visit again.

This is a well done museum about the early settlement and discovery of Hispaniola. There are models of many of the ships used in that era. There are original papers in Columbus's writing. The audio guide is well done and fast enough moving that kept even my husband a reluctant museum goer happy.
