    All about amber, its training, its varieties, the inclusions. Very educational and very rich collections Museum. The classic style building is located in the middle of a beautiful park.

    Away from the bustle of the beach, a Museum in a huge well-kept Park. Entirely refurbished, gives an overview of life which prevailed in this residence and especially presents a very interesting exhibition on amber. Passage in Palanga, instructive to visit.

    We visited the beautiful park with the fact this museum today. First of all, the great large, well-maintained park was a first highlight for us. Then the great castle with manicured gardens, flower beds and watering holes. Simply beautiful. The Museum is nicely made, but not really a must for visiting. The adjacent shop is unfortunately very high, what about the prices.

    Great place to see while being in Palanga, especially when the weather isn't too hot. Amber exhibition isn't very big, but still very beautiful. And the garden!!!! It is so lovely. Highly recommended to visit along with your family and friends :)

    Fantastic place with 19th century garden. Garden was designed by F.Andre, famous french landscape architect/designer. Although not much left from the 19th century buildings, the place is refurbished and cosy. Museum boasts with the largest collection of amber stones. If you're in Palanga, visit to this museum is a must!

    Great experience, a lot to see and a great price for everyone. Can easily spend an hour exploring, learning and looking at the exposition. Recommended place to visit while being in Palanga.

    The gardens are lovely to visit if the weather is on your side and the Amber exhibition is small but lovely. The shop is overpriced but overall it's a must do activity in the city
