The most extensive of the museum's highlights are the impressive collection of Taíno artifacts, including stone axes and intriguing urns and carvings and an interesting section on Carnival. Other exhibits focus on slavery and the colonial period, African influences in the DR (including a small section on Vodou) and contemporary rural Dominican life. Explanations are all in Spanish and the displays old-fashioned. English-speaking guides available – the service is free, but small tips are customary.
