Trip Planner: Caribbean / Dominican Republic / Santo Domingo Province / Santo Domingo / Museum of the Royal Houses
Marvel at classic colonial architecture from the 1500s at Museum of the Royal Houses, which once housed the administrative offices of the Spanish colonies, but now stands as a museum documenting the history of Santo Domingo. Request a personal guide and explore the labyrinth of rooms decorated with colonial furniture. The museum exhibits early legislation, the office of the chief judge, historical ceramics, military weapons, and all types of Taino artifacts. Take a quiet break in the interior courtyard, which features an elegant garden. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Museum of the Royal Houses and many more Santo Domingo attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Santo Domingo day trip website .

What it lacks is that they are offered guides and/or audio guides; The only thing on offer is a sitting person waiting for someone to come and ask for a follow-up. In turn, they may have more information about the objects that are displayed.
This was one of the stops of our Santo Domingo day trip and it was my favorite part of the entire excursion. Our group split between two guides - one in Spanish and the other in English. Our guide from the museum was very detailed in his presentation and clearly very passionate about the different pieces in the collection. I'm not sure what the cost of entry would be on its own but I would highly recommend making time to stop by this museum.
Very good english audio guide. It explains short and only important informations about the exhibitions. The entrance fee 100 DP includes the audio guide.
