Overview

Amber Museum in front of the colonial park with a wide exhibition of amber (incl. the biggest piece ever found of 13.4 kg), Larimar and other precious materials from this island. In the Amber Art Gallery we offer high quality jewelry made from local materials. The museum is located in one of the oldest buildings in Santo Domingo constructed by Francisco Tostado in the years 1505 to 1508.

Inside the Museo del Ambar you will see some of the most precious amber of the world, with the stones containing small fishes or insects, an almost pre-historical proof of life on the sea planet. Amazing!
