    Average trip. We arrived at approximately 11 am and made our way towards the entrance of the museum. After buying our admission tickets, we waited in the lobby for the next tour to start. The tour guide started promptly and took us from room to room in the museum, explaining the history and importance of amber in the Dominican Republic. There were multiple artifacts related to amber out for display, along with several informational plaques, detailing what we were seeing in front of us. Towards the end of the tour, we received a demonstration on how to roll cigars. There was a gift shop with various amber and tobacco products located in the last section of the building, however the items were quite pricey and we ended up not buying anything.

    Tip: I recommend spending 45 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

    Good trip. We arrived at approximately 12 pm and made our way inside the museum. After paying the admission fee, we were met by a tour guide who proceeded to give us a tour of the museum. The tour guide took us from room to room, while giving us a history lesson on one of the national hero’s in the Dominican Republic- General Gregorio Luperon. There were multiple artifacts out for display, and the tour guide was quite knowledgeable about the history of each item. The tour guide was able to answer all of the questions that we had.

    Tip: I recommend spending 30 minutes here if you truly want to see everything.

    1/21/24: My wife booked this tour for me, since I like rum. I found the tour to be very educational and entertaining. The video was pretty good, and the hostess was engaging. I enjoyed visiting the store before and after the tour. The rum sampling and displays areas were pretty cool. I ended up buying four bottles of rum, and was happy that I was able to sample three of them.

    Small museum that gives you an new perspective of Taino Art., enjoyed our quick visit, save for last when visiting Puerto Plata. If you run out of things to do, go here. Not a MUST SEE!

    Free stop that takes you through a few rooms about Amber in the country. English and Spanish signs. The insects in the amber were neat to look at The dinosaur exhibit set up to cash in on Jurassic Park fame. Walking through a fake cave tunnel was kind of neat too. The other sections were where they tried to show cigar making, jewelry making and wine drinks- all the time trying to sell you stuff. Worth a quick stop along the downtown walking area
