Overview

Although in an general state of disrepair, there are plans to renovate this museum in which the history of the island from Precolumbian time to the nineteen-sixties is documented. There are five exhibitions: "History of the Discovery", which relates the formation of the Antilles and aboriginal life culminating in the Discovery; "1822-1844", which touches upon colonial life but concentrates more on the Haitian occupation and culminates in the Independence; "1844-1916" is where you will find relics related to the post independence period leading up to North American occupation; "1916-1951" features the end of the occupation and Trujillo's dictatorship and a fifth room holds temporary exhibits.
