This museum is situated at a old building in the old town. It is hardly to find as the building like an old private apartment. It is dark and just have some posters stick around the entrance door. When you push the door, a lady will come up and turn on the light for you. The ground floor is a... More

There are a few interesting pieces in the well-organized but small lower level, but mostly it is a shop for selling amber. Skip it.

At this place the shop is on the ground floor - and the museum in the basement. A small, but quite cleverly set of displays explaining the details of amber, including a series of amber stones containing inclusions of insects! The main emphasis is on the shop. Wonderful pieces at not that affordable prices. But I got the feeling the... More

This shop and museum is well worth looking at. Yes, the shop's prices are quite steep, but the quality of the items for sale are high quality and surprisingly varied. You can find everything from beautifully carved wine goblets to USB flash drives attached to amber holders. Walking through the amber museum will teach you a lot about the background... More

Amber is so intertwined within the history and culture of the region that it would be a shame not to take the 15 minutes necessary to walk through the amber museum. The shops also display amber crafts and jewelry that is of far higher quality than the tourist amber shops in Vilnius.

Since every store in Eastern Europe seems to sell amber, it was interesting to learn how to tell the real thing from fakes. Real amber floats in a 10% salt water solution and also smells like the pine trees it came for. When it is touches with a hot pin or held in your hot hands for a while. Good... More

They have two rooms: one is the shop, and other - little museum. The most interesting part is the floor. It is made of glass and there are some animal models underneath. The prices in the shop are very high. Nothing extraordinary, but the entrance is free, so why not to visit.

This place is primarily designed to sell to tourists, but they do offer a free look at some nice amber pieces and provide some information on the history of amber.

Excellent, small museum loaded with information about amber. Amazing exhibits and beautiful, though expensive shop. Well worth a visit.

If you ever wanted to know where amber comes from, see all the colors and samples of it, this is the place to come. It's pretty small but houses a lot of information on amber. There is a store on the floor you enter on and you walk downstairs to the museum. It's free and doesn't take too long to... More
