“Short tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Very short tour in a very small museum. Maybe 5 min talk, 5 min walk trough. Large amber jewelry store in back. Guide held out a basket of tips. Typical. Bathrooms not clean. This was included on the city tour

“Lot's of history Larimar mining”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

Another place where people just rely on tips. So it is better to read info and get any questions answer by the locals. Flora fauna is described very well on wall displays.

“interesting to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

It's interesting to see where the varieties of amber came from and of course there is a lot of shopping for jewelry available in the lobby. If you step outside the front door, a lot of street vendors will approach(!) you as well.

“Part of City Tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

This was one stop on our city tour. Very small but interesting. Try to avoid the guys at the end who pressure sell you on the jewelry. If you are going to buy Amber the prices are ok from what I heard.
