  • Came to the Museum in a very rainy day, and stayed on the tour. Was daily reduced 12.00 excursion days. Come for an hour, but it quickly passed. Shops inside the Museum with amber, these outlets can be visited by anyone. Without excursions, of course, is not the impression. We were very lucky with the Guide Inna, very lively, interesting and not boring was telling as well as professionally snivelirovala situation where the girl in glasses banged his head on the storefront))) big thanks!

  • Like a Museum, never thought that you can make the amber intiresnye such things. Surprised and modern jewellery made with wood. I would like to mention Luca-Kaliningrad, who gave the Museum many expensive and beautiful exhibits. Well done, the descendants of the think.

  • I apparently had expected larger scale. Exhibits a little bit. I would like more information about properties, methods of extraction.

  • 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.
