Amber Museum

Dominican Amber is said to be some of the clearest in the world, and visitors can see for themselves at the Amber Museum. With a wide collection of valuable local amber on display, this museum is one of the more unique offerings on the island.


The amber on display at the Amber Museum is not the kind you will find in the jewelry store. Instead, you will find pieces with fossilized creatures inside, including lizards and bugs.
