  • Highly recommended, this small museum details perfectly all aspects of the Trujillo dictatorship (Propaganda, repression, etc.) and the struggle of his opponents to overthrow it.

  • Very nice but small museum. Quite helpful to understand recent Dominican history. Good guide to help you understand how Dominican resistance went through the age.  more »
  • To only have a sample of the painful recent history of the Dominican Republic you can visit the Memorial Museum of the resistance.

  • I worked in the construction of this museum a few years ago and it was amazing.
  • Great experience, I recommend visiting it to know more about Dominican history of resistence. It has a lot of details of the dictator Trujillo's era, memorabilia and cool antics (such as a talking wax figure of resistance leader Manolo Tavarez). You can also watch a montage of the Mirabal sisters: their murder triggered the fall of Trujillo.
  • A marvelous modern museum! This is a center for Dominican culture and nationalism, with events every week and frequent new special exhibits. If you read Spanish you can learn reams about the DR's 20th century history. Even without Spanish, there's a lot to see, including the reconstructed basement torture chamber of Generalissimo Trujillo.
  • If you want to learn about contemporary Dominican history and how the resistance shaped it, this is the place to go. It takes time, it's like going through a history book, but it's worth your time.
  • Informative with audio tour available in many languages
