“Informational stop!”

This was a very educational and interesting exhibit about the original inhabitants of the Dominican. The Taino people. We enjoyed walking around and seeing the artifacts and reading. a must stop in while in Altos de Chavon.

“Small, but nice with a great gift shop”

If you find yourself in Altos de Chavon and you have any interest in the geological formation of jewels or just want to pick up some jewels cultivated from the local areas this small but nice museum is worth a stop.

“a little jewel of a museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2009

The museum is tucked away in Altos de Chavon, but worth the look (behind the chapel). The docent was interesting and informative. Programming for children. Gift Shop. Be generous in your donation!
