Built in the 1600's, the Museo de las Casas Reales was not just the governments' executive offices for the Dominican Republic, but all Spanish colonies in the Caribbean region. Many of the events that shaped the New World were discussed in this building. Today, the walls are lined with maps and exhibits that chart out all of the Dominican Republic's history from the Taino people up to Trujillo's own personal weapon collection.
