Quick dive into this awesome exhibit will prove an education. Offers a hands on view of some unique pieces of different kinds of amber as well as a thorough history of this gorgeous resource Lithuania is known for.

Everything you could possibly wish to know about the formation of amber. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, and the variety of jewellery in the attached shop was impressive. We couldn't resist a purchase.

The amber museum in Vilnius is far smaller than the one in Klaipeda, but gives all information about the vegetal stone.

The only good thing about this place is that it is free. Other than that, it feels like a tourist trap (to put it nicely) and a scam (to be more blunt). It's an overpriced shop with a "museum" downstairs. My husband liked it because while I was shopping he was able to occupy his time looking at dead bugs... More

I love amber and this place educated me about so many different types of this 'stone". The raw amber pieces were the most stunning. also learned about the healing power of amber.

This was special and I thank our guide for showing us, as we would have walked right past. Great museum in the cellar area and Fantastic Amber in the shop.

After seeing the glut of amber necklaces, etc. from every street corner vendor, the last thing I wanted to do was see the Amber Museum-Gallery, but I am so happy I did. This was the real deal and very informative. We later went back and I purchased an amber and silver pendant that I know was authentic and not some... More

Very cozy and very knowledgeable staff. It is worth a visit, even if you don't want to buy amber. The housing itself is worth a visit.
