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.
