  • I'm not a big fan of amber jewelry but I enjoyed seeing the museum, which was a former mansion. The views outside are beautiful and it is worth walking through the gardens and woods. 
  • The museum itself, frankly, not very impressed. But that was after the tour! This is called education. You can learn how to produce amber it happens how it is treated, how to distinguish real from fake and whatnot. But most importantly, you can leave all this beauty in his hands. The sensations are unforgettable!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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".
  • It is a very nice museum with a rich history
  • The one and only!
