The Altos de Chavón Regional Museum of Archaeology

altos de chavon museum

The Altos de Chavón Regional Museum of Archaeology, opened in 1981, documents the important Indian legacy of the Dominican Republic and functions as a valuable source of information for students and visitors. The magnificent collection of indigenous works under the Museum’s custody was gathered over the course of 40 years by the collector Samuel Pión and consists of more than 6,000 pieces found in the region. These ritual and utilitarian objects demonstrate the evolution of the culture of indigenous societies from the pre-agricultural era until the time of the Taíno, the predominant culture on the island when the Spanish conquistadors arrived. The Museum is part of the Altos de Chavón Cultural Center Foundation, a not-for-profit cultural and educational institution that for more than two decades has contributed to the enrichment of the intellectual, artistic, and cultural panorama of the Dominican Republic.

Open daily: 9am to 9pm.
