Unique historical and art experience for our students, most who has never been to Santiago DR before. It helped us all understand the country origins more.

There is some interesting art and history here, but the displays are explained in Spanish. If you're in the area and have about an hour to spare, it's not a bad place to go. If you're choosing between this and something else, choose the other.

Even the displays are in Spanish, you can take an audioguide to listen in Spanish, Haitian Creole, English or French... Also you can reserv a guided tour in English, French, Italian o German.

This center offers contemporary art by Dominican artists, plus a fairly interesting array of Taino artifacts and information,and a rare dedication to feminist oriented work,which the DR desperately needs more of!
