“Part of City Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

We visited the Amber Museum for about 45 minutes as part of the 1/2 day City Tour. The museum was very informative and educational. At the end they give you a shot of Mamawana and I had the chance to roll my own cigar!

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

The amber museum is a good addition to the visit to town. It was amazing to see all the amber found off the coast.

Both me and my o/h enjoyed looking round as neither of us realised the Dominican produced amber.

“Short Look n' See”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Just a little interesting. Its a pretty fast walk through. Small museum with lots of insect covered amber and vegetation. Nothing really spectacular. If amber is your thing then you will enjoy. Not a top notch type of museum. Looks like a high school science fair set up.

“City Tour Amber Museum”

It was part of a city tour that we took. I wasn't sure if the jewelry was a bargain but we did purchase something.I personally wouldn't make a special trip to see it but it was part of the city tour we took.
