Amber Museum, Vilnius

3.9
#6 of 28 in Museums in Vilnius
Dedicated to one of the Baltic region's most famous and popular indigenous products, Amber Museum houses a number of small exhibits and displays showcasing the formation and uses of the valuable resin. Visit the museum in its 17th-century house, and you'll get the chance to view a wealth of amber pieces, large and small, that are millions and millions of years old. Follow the displays in the basement tracking the origins of amber and its different varieties and forms. This section also documents its usage throughout human history. Don't miss one of the centerpieces of the facility: a chunk of amber weighing around 3 kg (6.6 lbs.). Pick up a piece of jewelry, carving, or other amber-based souvenir from the gift shop.

    Lithuania is the best place to buy amber, not only because it is the cheapest place in the Baltic States, but that precisely in this museum sell you amber with certificate and original! Excellent service and good prices, obviously to buy true amber.

    It looks like a shop, but there is actually also a museum inside. Just ask how to get to the basement - and there you will find it!
