  • Anyone staying in Palanga should choose to park around the Palace Tyszkiewicz family. Well maintained with charming alleys, bridges and charming chapel on the Hill, you can visit in the Palace interiors of the amber Museum with amazing specimens of this mineral, and then to the sea. There everywhere.

  • I came back after 12 years and was pleasantly surprised at the great renovation of this place, unique in this region. The only full amber Museum I have been able to visit in Lithuania. We were fortunate to be accompanied by a local guide very prepared. The visit then to last two hours but even more it is surrounded by a botanical garden very well looked after too bad I could appreciate for the excessive quantity of snow that covered it but at the same time created an atmosphere quite impressive. A gem is the free cloakroom at the entrance where you can deposit the bags. Francis

  • Great place to see amber jewelry. Located in wonderful pictorial pine park. Good place to walk and relax.
  • I'm not big museum person but the amber museum was still interesting. At the first floor there was mainly old furniture,paintings etc, so nothing really for me. But the second floor gave a good overview about amber. Best part were the little critters who had got stuck in the amber. You could look those amber pieces with magnifying glass and see all the details. Museum isn't very big but considering the low price of the ticket, i would recommend to have a look!
  • Very interesting and beautiful place. Museum is located in the middle of the large park in a mansion or even palace like building. Exposition is very large and interesting. And in the end there is a little ship within crafts of real Amber.
  • A wonderful historical palace of a noble Tiškevičius family. On the first floor you will find a display of the once contemporary furniture, paintings and tapestries, while on the second floor you will discover displays of the varieties of amber, it's genesis, use, and beautiful creations of well known Lithuanian jewelers. Well worth visiting.
  • Visited this summer biking Baltics. Definitely worth a visit. Lovely park and interesting museum
