You get to know all About amber and how it is formed and there is also a part where you can roll Your own cigar and find out how they are made. Also the drink mamma Juana etc they try to sell at the end.

Nice quiet tour of the amber museum, interesting fact is that Dominican is the place where Jurassic Park filmed when they found the mosquito in the amber :) very neat to visit amd see different things that date from so many years ago.

Amber museums are all the same. Difficult to get away without having to buy something as hideous of jewellery.

It is in Old Puerto Plata near the Cathedral. It is a fair distance from Playa Dorado. Can't say for sure how far but you cannot walk. Sorry I do not know more. We had a car and drove in from Sosua.
