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.

In the middle of the beautiful and well maintained Palanga Botanical Park you’ll find the Amber Museum in a castle like building. When I visited the exhibition it was moved into the basement because of restorations of the upper building, but it was still impressive with informative texts and magnifying glasses for to study the amber inclusions. It says that... More

Lithuania was a very different experience: a country with a unique language (close to Sanscrit in origin), a history of occupation by larger neighbours and independent only since 1990. We landed at Klaipeda, and the rainy weather broke just as we were leaving the ship. We took a bus trip to Palanga - a seaside resort, home to a huge... More
