Far smaller than the one in Klaipeda, but worth seeing it if you can't go to Klaipeda

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.

My husband and I and our Vilnius friend visited the gallery which has two outlets on the same street. We went to the smaller gallery first, where we met two charming women - Gintara (Amber) and Greta who showed us around, told the story of amber and explained some of the ways to recognise the genuine article. If you want... More

Although it is difficult to find the place it is worth a visit while wandering through the city centre. It is not just a museum but a perfect place to buy real Amber.

In this gallery it's possible to find out some basic facts about amber locations in the Baltic Sea area, as well as to see a range of amber pieces of different size and shapes. Some of the pieces also have insects in them. The exhibited pieces range from 50 to 130 mln years old, which kind of reminds one of... More
