Amber World Museum is a private Museum, born from the initiative of Jorge Caridad, founder and president of the Amber Factory AMBASA. On September 5, 1996 it was inaugurated along with the celebration of the fifth centennial of the founding of the city of Santo Domingo in 1496.
In this Museum you will find the historical and scientific data on the time of the creation of amber, the animals and vegetation of that era that were fossilized in the amber, and everything concerning the formation and the characteristics of this gem.
All the pieces on display in the cabinets, on the panels, in the large wide-field microscopes, dioramas, audio-visual and interactive technology have the purpose to transport you back to the origin of amber.
You will be transported to the dawn of time, where you will discover the fascinating and mysterious secrets of amber.
Another feature of the Museum is the work shop where you will be able to appreciate the work of our expert craftsmen as they create magnificent amber jewelry mounted in gold and silver. These can be acquired in our elegant boutique which also specializes in valuable pieces of scientific character and books about amber.
