AAA Editor Notes
Amber World Museum is at the center of the Colonial Zone between Calle Vicente Celestino Duarte and Calle Restauración; the museum is on the second floor of a historical mansion. Formed over the course of millions of years from hardened tree resin, amber is found in abundance in the Dominican Republic. The museum's displays describe the semiprecious gem's origins, the variety of material often contained in amber (leaves, insects, spiders, small frogs, lizards, etc.), how it is mined and what distinguishes Dominican amber from that which is found elsewhere in the world.
Guided tours are available.
