Anyone who has a slight interest in the history and art of this area must visit the museum. It is one of those unique theme museums you will not find in other places in the world. The location and the building are amazing and the amber issue is very well presented together with some fine art made of this material. Not to be missed!!

This museum was very nice - it exceeded my expectations. It had a wide array of items on display that my whole family found interesting. For my kids, the ability to move magnifiers around and explore was great. The building is also quite beautiful.

Representative Palace of Palanga Counts Tiškevičiai Built in 1897. in the Birutė forest of Palanga, considered sacred by local residents, near the Baltic Sea. 1963 August 3 The Amber Museum was opened in the Tiškevičius Palace on the instructions of the Ministry of Culture, and it operates there until now. I use museum exhibitions already on 96 sq. m ir Jose Buvo Rodomi 478 exhibits. Gradually Palanga became an important center for collecting, researching and popularizing amber. The house is located in the museum, where you can find paid services, as well as the house in the network of 15 floors, the plot of land is 750 square meters. m. Expositions of the passage, which represent the historical story that we see, are beautiful, universal, useful. The Tiškevičiai Palace chapel can also be accessed from the main exhibition halls. Various Thematic Art Exhibitions have been organized in it in recent years.

Well worth a visit . The museum is located inside a fine stately home. The displays are excellent and show all the history of amber through the ages . There is a nice walk through the manor grounds up to the house.

Lovely place with some magnificent items, including an amber inclusion with a lizard. Interesting information on the different forms of amber and the origin. The venue itself has an interesting story and is located in a lovely park.

The Amber Museum is an okay place to visit although the display hasn’t changed much over the past 10 years and it really is begging for an update. On the other hands, the grounds surrounding the museum are awesome. More about that later.

The amber museum is housed in an old mansion. You walk away with a pretty good appreciation of some high points about amber’s history but the lack of English makes it difficult to understand all of the exhibits. Plus, the explanations that are in English were written by some university types and leave the layman somewhat cold. On balance, it is an okay way to spend an hour but it is only a mediocre exhibit.

Two things associated with the museum do make it worth the visit. First is the park in which the museum is located. It is spectacular. Well manicured and simply a delight to walk through. A beautiful pond with white swans and lots of ducks make for an idyllic setting. Entrance to the park is free and worth a stroll especially on a nice day. The second is the amber jewelry store that is at the conclusion of the museum. Some of the finest pieces of amber jewelry we’ve ever seen. Reasonably priced (although not cheap) but, more importantly, very unique pieces that stand out from the normal touristy necklaces and bracelets on sale elsewhere in Lithuania

Dear tourists! We visited that museum some years ago. Park is nice, but museum is so big disepointence! Castl is renovated, but all exposition is on basic floor - one room with amber with insects, another room shows jewerly, on the end you can see 3rd room-shop, where they sell FAKE amber and sellers lie and say thats reall one. Its a bigest disepointence around the world, that un museum they do not tell and do not sell reall things. Sad, angry and tired from lies :((
don' t go there, we all were tired after so long walk and then fron nothing interesting to see. when we wanted to know the weigth of bigest peace, museum worker sed, that she does not know, but we can look for smaller one, there is info about the weight.
just dont go there, kids will feel boring.

Perhaps a bit off the beaten track, Palanga, the museum, the people, stays in my memory as a significant place to visit. A pleasant stroll walk from the long ocean pier jutting into the Baltic sea through a delicate forest protected from sea winds by high sand dunes covered in tall grasses, the Amber Museum is in a beautifu gracefull setting. The tempting and skillfully created artworks in the museum and giftshop are a surprise after the touristy products sold in the cities. Best place for a beautiful souvenir!

A slow walk through the adjacent town tells so much of the local history and spirit of the people - carvings on porch columns of vikings, enormous post-Soviet Christian crosses proudly erected in rose gardens ,the houses painted yellow because it is the cheapest color. Bring your camera!

Lithuania was a very different experience: a country with a unique language (close to Sanscrit in origin), a history of occupation by larger neighbours and independent only since 1990. We landed at Klaipeda, and the rainy weather broke just as we were leaving the ship. We took a bus trip to Palanga - a seaside resort, home to a huge botanical park with a 19th-century, neo-Renaissance mansion that houses a huge amber museum. The walk through the park was striking - more a 21st century design than a 19th century one: very few formal garden spaces, one large, meandering pond with a small island, walking bridges, ducks and a pair of swans. The many curving, easily walkable, trails wandered through a natural pine and mixed hardwood forest. After @ a 45+ minute walk through the woods, we came upon a straight, broad, paved carriage path crossing and a sand mound with a wooden walkway going up it. Only when we neared the top of the mound did we see the sea - wind driven, roiling waves, and sand beach as far as you can see. I kept thinking, our landscape architect friend would love this place. The amber museum was quite extensive, and the talk on amber interesting, but nothing to match the park. When we returned to the old town of Klaipedia, we were ready to return to our ship, rest and look at our pictures.

On a recent cruise we docked at Klaipeda, Lithuania. We booked a shore excursion to Palanga and the Amber Museum. Our guide, Audra, was excellent and her tour company so generous. After the Amber Museum, which is worthy of a visit, we went back to Klaipeda to a restaurant where we sampled local bread (dipped in garlic and butter) and Svyturys 1784 beer. Both delicious. We were also each given little bags of amber chips to remember our visit. I recommend a stop in Klaipeda and Palanga, Lithuania. This little country with no natural resources other than amber is trying hard to build their tourism industry and I wish them all the best.
