Museo de la Altagracia

Museum in Higüey

This extremely well-done and modern museum traces the history of religion and culture in the DR back to the 18th century. It is on the grounds of the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia, surrounded by an impressive sea of palm trees, and well worth a visit. It's supposed to have paid entry for tourists, but there was nobody taking money when we popped in.
