  • In addition to the main exhibition, presented at the 2-nd floor we were able to visit the exhibition masters from Lithuania jewelry. Jewelry, presented on 1 floor delight with its beauty. Never thought that Amber could be such a majestic stone. Children age 8-10 years it will be interesting to visit this museum.

  • Strongly advise to visit the Museum with a guide. We were lucky, we were in a group with a very experienced guide, who talked about exhibits in a very convenient way: quickly and without unnecessary boring information, for what it many thanks. An independent visit, seems to me to be less informative and interesting. Separately, I note that the Museum is housed in a historic building from the gate that is undoubted advantage.

  • I only was interesting. Shop at the Museum of insanely expensive. In other shops of the city are much cheaper and just as good. The museum itself has not gone as not a fan of stones

  • 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.

  • 1. unique Museum. 2. Visitors really like it-is required to visit! 3. Even without taking into account the amber-architecture the building kick-ass.
