Overhyped, the exposition consists of old and newer amber articles and jewelry which smack of lecturer tedium - which is infrequently imposed or adopted by visitors who do not know better. Contributes nothing to one's soul. Too scholarly.

Although I am not a fan of Amber, still decided to visit it. The entry fee was small, and I was tempted to climb on top of the tower, to see the city from up above. The collection is quite impressive, with some beutiful pieces.

Museum located in old defensive tower. Some of doorways are only 1,70m high, so be careful. In the museum you can find some exhebitions: amber history, accessories made from amber and finery of different cultures. Exhibition of amber divided in small booths. Most impressive booth are about insects steeped in amber, parts of Amber room in St-Petersburg and differents works... More

Everything you need to know about amber is explained in this museum. And the collection of carvings, dishes and artwork from amber is incredible. I like to wear amber, and I'm glad that I now know more about it.

I spent almost two hours inside this very interesting museum. Besides beautiful displays of various pieces and creations of things made using pieces of amber, there was a lot of good information about the origin of Amber and its uses. It is set in an old lookout tower with interesting history about that as well. This was also the first... More

i work at the Amber museum but i write this reference not to advertise the museum but to make some moments clear. The exposition consists of both originals (of 3-5 cent. AC, of 17-18 cent., of the early 1930-40s, contemprorary objects) and replicas of other articles we haven't got the originals of. The largest piece of amber in Russia (4... More

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
