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.

  • THE cultural center of Santiago. Created and operated by the private sector. Nice example of social involvement.
  • Very beautiful, modern art exhibits. It somehow reminded me of MoMA Also. Well organized and clean. Friendly, helpful staff. Only complaint: a bit overpriced cafeteria, for just ok food.
