Amber World Museum, Santo Domingo

(110+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Amber World Museum by using our Santo Domingo trip generator.
