Old-fashioned museum with USSR styled displays and medieval nice surroundings, awsome round patio with fountain. It is on the top of to-see-list of Koenigsberg. There are stalls with quaint crafted souvenirs just in front of the entrance to museum. (The far from the museum gate, the more cheap-looking and flashy jewels are sold)

It's the one of a very few museums in Kaliningrad that is worth visiting. You'll get to know the history of amber and see a variety of pieces of art made from this gem: from tiny to great ones. Many of them are unique. There are as well many shops where one can buy goods from amber at a nice... More

We went to this humble little museum for a bit of fun really...its not spectacular but its a nice way of killing an hour and is pleasantly located near the lakes in the city which are very nice to walk around. I didn't realize Amber was so important to this region so I did learn something good there

Unfortunately, my last visit to the Amber Museum in Kaliningrad was real disappointment. Compared with amazing amber museums in neighbouring countries - Palanga, Lithuania and Gdansk, Poland, the one in Kaliningrad is like a poor cousin. Few diaramas unchanged since 1970s, few huge natural pieces of amber and some old-fashioned jewelry, probably from the same period, although the amber profile... More

My mother had an amber necklace that she treasured and in our family amber was a rare delight reminiscent of immigrant origins. What a delight to take a trip to the source and see in in abundance not only for sale in shops and stands, but especially to see its historical and artistic richness in this lovely museum. I think...

This museum is located at some distance away from the city centre but not too long you can even walk and found it quite interesting and does explain how amber is formed and it's history and there is also a shop with plenty to choose.

Amber is something which is nice to look at in moderation, but this amber museum seems to think that amber is so wonderful that just looking at it and things made of it is the most exciting thing ever. Of course, this does not have to be the case even in an amber museum. I had expected something which perhaps... More
