I didn't know anything about the amber trees. It was so interesting to see. Also there were some paintings. Amber is so exclusive and if it is pure than expencive also. It is little far to walk from the parking place. And do not forget the parking clock.

The Amber Museum is really a double treat! First, it is housed in the mansion of the former Count, the house itself is beautiful! It has recently been restored inside and out, and itself is an historical treasure! The Amber Exhibition is amazing. Many beautiful pieces are on display. Many of the exhibits are designed to give you the opportunity... More

This is a must for visitor. I remember coming here as a kid and now I am visiting with my own children. Museum has been recently renovated, we especially enjoyed amber exhibition. There are two touch screens and children enjoyed playing educational quizzes, putting puzzles of Palanga, etc. Great place, do not miss it!

You feel like stepping into Lithuanian royalty history when you enter the Tiskevicius mansion. The displays are interesting and kids will definitely enjoy seeing different insects stuck in million year-old amber.

If you are visiting Palanga it's main place to go, of course if you are looking for some real facts and history of Palanga and Lithuania. In this museum I were already 4 times with random visiting groups, and I can still recommend this place.

The scenery and layout is just superb. Historical and scientific at the same time. The birds are friendly. The shop is great.
