Photographer's Note

Occupying the former 16th century home of
Francisco Tostado, this striking colonial building restored into a museum — also known as Museo de la Familia Dominicana del Siglo XIX — showcases the lifestyle of 19th century middle class Dominican families with model displays of bedroom and library furniture to a charcoal oven kitchen, sewing room, and tea lounge. Items were collected from various prominent families to recreate each scene. The building’s double Gothic-Elizabethan window makes it the only house in the Americas with this architectural feature.
