The Museum of Folk Art of Thomas Morel is worth a visit, as well. It presents a collection of exhibits relating to colonial times. One of the most valuable is a collection of carnival masks. Yet, they've carefully preserved household items and even homes of the first Spanish settlers. A significant part of the museum's exposition is dedicated to the culture and traditions of the indigenous inhabitants of the Dominican Republic.
