Amber World Museum, Santo Domingo

4.1
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.
  • Amazing experience ! Go to see Amber & Larimar ! I've had a very nice time over there. The guides Brunilda, and Alejandra are very friendly. They know their jobs well with many info to share ! This museum is big comparing to others one. You can buy beautiful Amber & Larimar too. I definitely recommend this place to visit. Matthieu
  • This place is AMAZING!! The people were so friendly and the tour of the museum with a guide was free.
  • Great place to learn about history, architecture, and the amber mined in the Dominican Republic. Lots of really beautiful amber jewelry for sale.
  • the museum is small but nice, gift shop has a nice collection of artistic souvenirs at good affordable prices, the inner courtyard is artistically laid out
