The displays are accompanied by succinct texts not only in Spanish and English, but French and German as well. An interesting world map shows the wide extent of amber findings. A small display recounts the history of Larimar, and its re-discovery in 1974. Free entrance, one stair up from a jewelry store by Parque Colon.

The Owner remembered our family from months earlier. She even told some of the others who we were. She seemed genuinely happy to see us back and we hadn’t even bought any amber before. That’s not to say we didn’t buy anything this time but we knew their prices were good and the little museum upstairs was very informative about Amber and Larimar, a blue-green stone found only in the DR. If you are interested in either, go there and check them out. Just the museum is worth seeing while you are at Parque Colon.

It turns out that all the Amber/Larimar museums are stores with some educational displays upstairs in the museum part, along with some really elegantly carved pieces. This Amber Museum (next to the plaza) has very reasonable prices and friendly staff, and the carver is there so you are more confident the work is done here instead of India/China. The store has an extensive selection of different insect-containing ambers as displays or jewelry, and the staff was super patient with us looking over these under a magnifying glass. Their larimar is also better priced than the Larimar Museum (which seems to be owned by Amber World). Make sure you check out the large carved Amber pieces upstairs including the octopus!

We really just popped in to have a look for a gift and ended up staying ages and then going back. The staff are so friendly, helpful and informative that it made the whole experience just wonderful. If you are in Santo Domingo don't buy your amber or larimar on the street before you check out this little gem!

A small, but interesting and informative collection about amber, its forms and types, mining locations, formation etc.) Downstairs there is a shop and the mini-museum is located upstairs. As it is free, definitely worths a visit! (NOT the same as Amber World Museum / Museo Mundo de Ambar, located in Calle Arzobispo Meriño! Just look at the map.)
