If you are looking to do more sight-seeing, visit Tobacco Museum. It is found within central Santiago De Los Caballeros. The Tobacco Museum has several exhibits that focus on the growing of tobacco, the growth of the industry in the Dominican Republic, the processing of tobacco into cigars, and the use of tobacco in the West. The museum also occasionally features temporary exhibits that change from time to time. Visit their website or contact them for up-to-date information on rotating exhibits.

Centro León: Everything you need to know about the culture of the Dominican Republic is housed within the Centro Cultural Eduardo Leon Jimenes. Founded by Eduardo Leon Jimenes, who wanted to create a spot for locals to learn to appreciate art, the museum began to take on a life of its own when donations began pouring in.
