World King Art Castle

World King Art Castle is the place for people who are interested in culture, history or science would have the challenge of spending a pleasant and joyful time in museums. There is usually always a more educational approach to spending hours in museums. The lack of entertainment factors and few interactions mean that some visits are often boring in Puerto Plata.

But there is a museum in the Dominican Republic that deserves to be visited. If you are on the north coast of Sosúa, you must go through a strange and uncategorizable museum. It is easy to find and visible from great distances on the hill. A little away from the Caribbean turbulence on the beaches, you will find it on Calle Camino Libre.

Probably one of the strangest places on the planet, this five-story hilltop castle in Sosúa is home to hundreds of unusual works of art, including alien-themed art, extraterrestrial messages, and at least four spaceships, as well as one considerable collection of exotic Haitian sculptures.

Rolf Schulz, a German artist, decided at the age of 51 that he would leave his hometown of Hamburg to pursue his dream of building a castle in the Dominican Republic. And so World King Art Castle was born.

The artist began this labor of love in 1990 and lived in the house without electricity or running water until his death in January 2018. Before his death, he regaled visitors with stories of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. His self-built palace now doubles as an otherworldly art museum.

The castle’s five floors are filled with several hundred pieces of surreal art, including an impressive collection of sculptures by Haitian and Dominican artists (many of them exotic), as well as stone and wood carvings, paintings, and murals. Those who climb the stairs to the top floor find a reward: the view of the Bay of Puerto Plata is impressive.
