Set in one of the most beautifully restored 17th century colonial buildings, the Amber World Museum boasts a small but comprehensive display on this precious stone on the second floor of the building—past the ground floor jewelry store. In the first dimly lit room, red, blue, and green amber stones of varying sizes from the DR and abroad are showcased. The second room is dedicated to the unique features of Dominican amber, and its mining history in the country.
