Amber World Museum, Santo Domingo

4.1
#4 of 14 in Museums in Santo Domingo
Small but interesting, Amber World Museum specializes in prehistoric amber. The museum's collection shows off many examples of different shapes and sizes, colors and tone--lots of them flecked with ancient insects and plant matter trapped inside. A knowledgeable guide can take you around the exhibits and highlight interesting information. Browse the shop for amber and amber jewelry, but bring extra cash to cover the rather high prices.

  • Fantastic touristic landmark. We visited while in Santo Domingo and had a great time learning about Dominican Amber, where's it's recovered from and the many uses it has in jewelry and medicine. The staff was both knowledgeable and very helpful. Would wholeheartedly recommend.

Where to stay in Santo Domingo

Competition keeps prices in Santo Domingo competitive, with an excellent selection of accommodations catering to guests of all tastes and budgets. Zona Colonial offers by far the best choices, with a smorgasbord of hostels and bed and breakfasts lining the capital's well-preserved central streets. From there, you'll enjoy easy access to the best attractions in Santo Domingo, as well as the beach and the river. Look southwest along Avenida George Washington to stay at a higher-end hotel with views over the water.
