The park and building is beautiful and all, but there is little to see inside. Definitely a museum with more potential.

The villa sits at the center of a beautiful park that includes both forested biking and walking trails as well as formal gardens,... More

The museum is in a beautiful park and within a very impressive building. (a former 19th century family home/palace). The museum doesn't get too crowded and you are free to roam at will and learn as much or as little as you like about amber from this region. A very pleasant afternoon when coupled with a trip around the rose... More

The Amber Museum is housed in a former 19th century Neo Renaissance style palace that now houses the biggest Amber museum in the Baltic. There you will see up close and first hand all the various shades of Amber as well as all the little critters, plants and such that are encased in the Amber stones. It's pretty magnificent. There...

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
