Highly recommend it. Watched them make the jewelry . Huge selection of finished pieces. They will also make a custom piece to order. Reasonable prices too.

I'm not that interested in amber and have seen history of it before. This museum was included on the city tour and OK. The best part was that the best larimar jewelry we found on the trip was in this location. The reps from this place also visited our resort we found, along with a lot of lesser vendors.

Small but informative. I learned a lot and our tour was conducted by the curator. It is worth the stop.

You had to walk up stairs, 3 flights. Some of the older people on our tour found it difficult. I wouldn't have gone on my own, but it was part of a city tour. 10 minutes was about 5 minutes too long.

You will be tempted to purchase the lovely jewellery. If you choose not to purchase then it is fun just to look around ( you could see it all in about 15 min.)

Stopped by this museum during the city tour. Small museum but interesting to see the different Amber samples. Cool enough for a few minute stop but not enough to keep you there much longer than that. I wouldn't make a special trip there but as it was part of the city tour it was neat to stop and see it.

We liked that we knew the stones were authentic. The museum itself could use a facelift, but if you are interested in amber there are some nice specimens to see. Only $3.00 for two of us to enter. Sells all price points of jewellery including the rare "blue amber". Can watch hand rolled cigars being made too.
