Amber World Museum, Santo Domingo
(3.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Not a big fan of amber, but the collection there picked up good. Impressed some exhibits, especially insects in amber), visitors can take a paid tour in English.

  • Actually I would not call it Museum, rather it is an exhibition about this stone where explian how he is extracted and is esponen some curious specimens. To be visited within the zona colonial, it would be advisable to round off the day. It has a store almost as large as the exhibition showing
