Museo Mundo del Ámbar

Recommended
To learn everything there is to know about amber, visit the Museo Mundo del Ámbar. It has a unique collection of fauna and flora (fragments of leaves, insects) captured in this tree resin. The specimens date from the time, some 20 million years ago, when the island was covered by tropical forest. Amber and larimar jewellery is on sale from the craft shop adjacent to the museum.
