I'm glad that we went to this museum on our last day in the DR because it brought together so much of the history that we had learned throughout the previous days. It has a very extensive explanation of the different time periods of ethnic groups, their life styles, and contributions to modern day life from the Taino Indian language seen in Spanish/English words today to African slavery by the Spanish. There is a large display of Carnival masks and costumes from the different regions of the islands. Although not in the Colonial Zone, it definitely was worth the effort to get to this museum.
