  • The Museum went somewhere in the evening at 5 p.m., so the total inspection time was scarce. Go! It is interesting to look at amber with different small insects through a large magnifying glass. Struck a collection of jewelry. But it is a pity that no booths with information in Russian. Only in English and Lithuanian.

  • 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
