We visited this museum as part of a city tour. Our group had a private guide who spoke English. We learned a lot about General Luperon and the history of the Dominican Republic. As noted in a previous review, this is a great stop for history buffs (and those who love museums).

This is a quality opportunity to get an education on the rich history of Puerto Plata. The museum is well managed and the experience is the best value in town. Highly recommended.

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.

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.

A real find. This museum tells the story of General Luperon through the artifacts of the day as well as through an interesting film (as others have said -- insist on seeing the movie first, otherwise the tour is does not make a lot of sense). The building is a replica of the house in which this Dominican hero died... More

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.
