“Amber Museum”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Average really, would not rush back for a second visit, Quite interesting in parts but once youve seen one piece of amber you have really seen them all.

“A tour through amber”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

It was a short tour , but interesting. We found the information very good, but were a little turned off by the dark and dingy stores that you were forced to go through.

“Needs updating”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

This place is in disrepair and is dirty. the amber itself is interesting but not deserving of an entire museum. Our tour here was part of the City Tour package. The tour of the amber exhibits lasted about 20 minutes. The obligatory stay in the gift shop where all the staff is lasted more than 30 minutes. This is typical of all of our adventures on the dreaded city tour.
