Amber World Museum, Santo Domingo

(3.5/5 based on 110+ 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.
