I have to confess a bias before proceeding - I'm a mineral collector so a visit to Lithuania without a visit to an amber museum would be unthinkable. Although the display area is not large it is educational, and I came away with a better understanding of (and appreciation of) amber. My biggest criticism is that they did not have... More

It's a small museum with amber exposition. If you want to know where do we have amber from and to see some nice pieces of amber or jewellery, you can go there. It will take not more than an hour. But park around is great for long walks.

We arrived in Klaipeda by ship and took a tour of Palanga. The botanical gardens surrounding the Amber Museum were beautiful with scuptures and a lake. As our group approached the home housing the Amber Museum we were addressed by an actor pretending to be the son of the family owning the home. He told us about the history of... More

We were looking for something to do while in the area and since the Baltic region is known for Amber we decided to visit this museum. If you are not an amber fan,( I am not a fan) skip this museum. There is only so much they can do with amber to make it interesting. The grounds are very pretty... More

I only did 3 dots because it was so small. About 20 minutes and we were in our way to the beach. The first room had the bugs in Amber and nice displays with sliding magnifying glasses. Jewelry and old pieces. Small gift shop. It was 25 lt for my family (4 kids and 2 adults). So not bad if... More

We visited in May of 2014 and were unable to see much of this building because of the renovations. I;m sure that my rating would have been excellent if we had been able to see more than the basement and a limited selection of exhibits. The gardens were also quite nice. Very peaceful and beautiful.

A very interesting museum with a great collection of amber, which is originating from the Baltic Sea and other regions.
