  • You can be dazzled by the amber-zarjadish'sja Sun! Everything in the Museum, from the mysterious Tower location, Interior, amazing exhibits masterpieces like the vessel from amber to photos and audio story about the processing of stone. However, as any loving jewelry woman, I am biased and I can contemplate the infinitely: in the Museum, and stands for sale on the ground floor, which are many.

  • Amber Museum is required to attend if you want then to find amber on the shores of the Baltic Sea. The Museum tells the whole story and all the information on the types, usage and origin of amber. Very informative. There are instances of the class "craft projects"

  • April 30 were in the Museum and have come into the jewelry shop. The husband wanted to please me and granddaughters and snohe. And I bought a lot of bracelet and ring with stone. On horror he palmed nonsense. And the price is more than 15000 rubles nonsense. On the site of the workshop even close, there are no prices. But what we watched on the site, is much cheaper and coarser. Is it a hoax? Don't buy and don't go into the workshop "Prussian honey! Take your nerves and money!

  • An interesting Museum. Better to go without small children. They quickly look and will want to exit, and you can't all take a close look.
