Simple, yet surprisingly educational and revealing of Dominican culture and history

The museum is small but very pretty. The experience takes you back in time walking you through the life of general luperon and the Dominican society.

Some local friends of ours brought us here. We didn't think much but once you walk in it is very good. Pleasant surprise and very informative. Would suggest to any history buffs.

Luperon was one of the fathers of the Dominican Republic. It just opened in 2012 after a $2.5 million renovation. Everything first rate. Great exhibits, mostly in Spanish but guide had pretty good English. Ask to see the movie first. You will get more out of it. Nice cafe on site.
