The UFO museum! While the creator was not there we did tour around all the interesting levels. Fantastic art and the view from the top is amazing. It looks like the building is not finished and keeps getting added to. The UFO's are amazing. In that room there was a huge wasp nest, which was also amazing hehe. The sculptures... More

We were told about Castillo Mondo King for a long time and finally visited it. Wow, what a place, definitely a shock to the senses on so many levels. The sheer enormity of this project dreamed up and created by Rolf is mind blowing! The Haitian art is sometimes bizarre, but interesting. It is difficult for a visitor to wrap... More

The domain of an eccentric named Rolf who is convinced that he has been visited by extra terrestrials, this unique museum and space ship factory is an amazing place to spend a few hours. Though initially he may be a bit off-putting, you will find that Rolf is very intelligent, knowledgeable of Haitian art, and has a great collection, some... More

Had the opportunity to visit this museum recently. First, we were charged 300 pesos each for a guided tour. In past reviews, I see that donations were accepted. This museum has about 5-6 + levels of various art pieces primarily Haitian Art. Some of this is exotic. Others with spiritual overtones. Then there are random UFOs that appear along the... More

This place is really strange, its owned by a 70 yrs old German Gentlemen, who designed the place and started building it in 1990 and finished around 2010. The art in this place is 95% made by hatians and have a heavy component of voodoo, religion, deamons and ufos. I am not really into anything of the things i saw... More

The view is incredible from the top level. There are probably 20 actual levels in the place. 80 percent Haitian art & sculpture. The building looks like the Taj Mahal! REALLY!

We heard about the "UFO Museum" and with much amusement decided to check it out. We were the only people there (as it seems most of the reviewers in Tripadvisor were) and the guide ushered us around the place at at our own pace. There was a lot of artwork: paintings, sculptures and carvings. It was Haitian, Dominican and Alien!... More
