Aiming to preserve Dominican art and culture through educational programs, the Eduardo León Jimenes Foundation established Centro Leon in 2003 as a nonprofit institution and cultural center. The center encompasses three permanent exhibitions with the main focus on identity, habitability, and creativity in the Dominican Republic, and a variety of artistic workshops and learning courses, as well. Pay a visit to the center's auditorium, multipurpose lounges, media library, and Caribbean-menu cafeteria, and then go for a walk through the garden and enjoy the view of endemic plants and a collection of sculptures.

  • Nice and artistic place. Attention is really nice and the pieces are really good. Everything runs with a trendy artistic vibe.
  • A truly cultural spot. Very interesting.
  • Hands down one of the best museums in the country. The exhibit on the environment of the Caribbean was amazing. Detailed and informative. I would definitely revisit and bring friends and family.
  • Comparable with any other art museum in its class. Culture, music, friends, food, art, and local events are here.
  • Museum and a nice place for photographers to take pictures and photo shoots.
