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.

Exhibits and Offerings

Exhibits at this museum bring guests through the history and culture of the Domnican Republic, beginning when the island of Hispaniola first formed, and working its way through to present day.

At the museum, you'll have access to a restaurant for patron use.
