“What Museum !!!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Went to the Amber Museum as part of a full days trip (Rum Factory, Cigar Factory, Shopping in Puerta Plata and supermarket - no of it worth the money we paid).

The Amber Museum was a small building, we walked around the outside of the building looking at numerous amber stones with insects, lizards and ferns inside of the lava - after you have seen one bit of amber with a spider you have seen them all.

The whole point of all the trip was to sell you their items, their wasn't much of history about the trip at all !!!

“Not very interesting”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Very hard to understand the tour guide if you are not fluent in Spanish. Seems like the main purpose is to rush you through the exhibit to get you to the gift shop so that you will purchase merchandise.
