  • A museum very simple but very well arranged, with many photographic images, videos, audios, and good teaching technique that shows all events before and during the tyranny of Rafael Trujillo regime. Here I really knew the story of the Mirabal sisters and their international meaning on the theme of non-violence against women. There are few objects with historical value, however valuable here is the story, how to tell it, displays. The experience itself is very interesting. To me I loved it!

  • I learned a ton during my visit. The audio guide was informative, and the photos were, too. As others have mentioned, there is just way too much text to get through. This shouldn't discourage you from...  more »
  • Mandatory stop if you want to know the events of tyranny, not only the Trujillo, the before and after, enforced disappearances, crimes, the invaders, as Dominican is a painful reality that we hope never recurred.

  • 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.
  • Great experience, I recommend visiting it to know more about Dominican history of resistence. It has a lot of details of Trujillo's era, memorabilia and cool antics (such as a talking wax figure of Manolo Tavarez).
  • Great place to learn about Dominican people and their culture. Is a history place.
  • Must!!! Great place to learn about the Dominicans fight for freedom.
