When you hear Amber museum, you expect really something...here it is a beautiful villa which tells history on the ground floor and the museum is only on the second floor. Quite nice but I expected more. The flowers in the park and in the rose garden are beautiful!!!

Very nice park leading up to this museum, with plenty of shade and plenty to see. If your going inside the museum, save yourself 0.60€ and go to the WC inside for free because the one in the park adjacent to the museum charges. The museum is well laid out and if you know nothing about like amber as I... More

Great museum in the middle of a beautiful park It is one of the best places to visit, when in Palanga. It is a nice walk, from the center of town. Sited in a beautiful park that would make a nice few hours stroll in a very tranquil place.

Palanga Amber museum is a very special place. It is located in the Botanic natural park (that is worth visiting per se more than once). If you have limited time in Palanga, rush to the museum on a rainy day and enjoy not only the unique collection of amber, a very comprehensive excursion that is available in many languages, but...

I was pleasantly surprised with the fact that the museum wasn't just about amber. The place is beautiful and has information in English. I had a personal guide from the tourist-center. So I didn't really notice if the staff knew english or were that friendly.

The museums interior is reconstructed to the highest standarts and represent the old times. The museum is very large and beautiful, there you can find many different shaped ambers and a very famous "Sun amber" - very big amber.

The Amber Museum has recently been renovated with great love and care. I found it so uplifting to glide through the rooms of the little palace and follow the history of amber formation and its sourcing. I have visited the place quite a few times in the past, it's very dear to me. Yellow, the colour of the sun and... More
