It is that time again for the day and night of free museums and more on Saturday, September 1, 2018 from 10 in the morning to 12 midnight. All of the museums in the Colonial Zone area will be open and free of charge to the public.
There be so many interesting, cultural and educational activities happening in the museums. There will also be many events and fun happening in the streets and parks

Come for the entire day. Stroll the streets of the magical colonial city and enjoy the ambiance the historical city has to offer.
Some of the highlights include Columbus Palace – Museo Alcazar de Colón and Casa del Tostado – Museo de la Familia Dominicano where there are characters dressed in colonial clothing to greet the guests. Art at the Colegio de Gorjón – Centro Cultural de España.
I highly suggest that when you visit use public transportation or park and walk. It is not easy to find parking in the Colonial Zone. The more visitors, the more traffic jams that happen in the narrow streets of the Zone.
