  • Nice building, but meseum is very simple and modest. You can visit it for fun and if you have a lot of free time. 
  • A jewellery Museum of a special kind. Countless Bernsteineponate attract their attention. The Museum tells the story of the amber Fischer and the following processing to jewelry pieces of most valuable quality.

  • I enjoyed seeing huge ambers. The most impressive part was where you could see bugs or something traped inside the amber.

  • Very beautiful grounds upkeep is emaculnt. The amber exhibits were nice but the curating could be a bit better.but all in all i had a wonderful and relaxed time.
  • Great place to see beautiful examples of amber! I visited the museum once, but I was in the park nearby many times. There is a beautiful pond with ducks and swans, I liked to feed them with bread. Very romantic place I should say. There is also a nice sculpture "Eglė žalčių karalienė".
  • The park nearby is amazing place for walking with children and dogs. Many plants, trees, ponds and swans make this place very cosy at day or night.
  • Beautiful Amber exposition. Had a great time!
  • It is a very nice museum with a rich history
