The Amber Museum has recently been renovated with great love and care.

Not much to say, we a group of 3 came specialy to Palanga to visit the Amber Museum just to be told that the last entry was at 3.15pm. We were there at 3.20pm. There were other disappointed visitors! The staff was very uncaring. Our travel book was totally wrong!

The museum is worth a visit. Interesting to read and see various amber stones in all kind of shapes and colors. The Amber department is just a part of the museum and you also find other historical info and info about Amber jewelry and design. The surrounding garden and park is quiet an relaxing.

One of the places I always visit when in palanga. It's great for all ages. The park grounds are great for walks and cycling. the museum building is very well kept and you can visit rose garden in the back courtyard. the museum itself is worth a visit as well. check opening times in advance

I lovw the cjanges of this museum after renovation. It is a wonderul path through the botanical garden crossing the Amber museum to the sea. Great classical museum concerts are held therw. The garden is amasing, always flowers blossoming, lovely ponds with swans around. Nice place for the special occasions or romantic walk with your significant other

The park, the amber museum is, can be described as very impressive! The large area and so beautiful within it. The Amber museum is nice. My English boyfriend hasn't seen anything like this before. He was very surprised. I've been here before and it's always nice to be back!
