  • Visited the Museum without a guide, a lot of information in the Museum. But Museum staff recommend ordering tour. Perhaps the impression it would be more complete, but liked the Museum. Many interesting exhibits and stories. I'd recommend.

  • The Museum is located in the Centre of Kaliningrad, in a historic building is the Tower of the Don, on the banks of the upper pond. For one it's location in this historic site Museum worth a visit! Playground of the Museum covers three floors with a surface area of about 1000 m2. and includes somewhere jekspanatov 16000. Here is a collection of unique pieces of amber, different in size, shades and transparency, interspersed with fragments of animals and plants. It is here that kept Russia's largest piece of amber is weighing nearly 4.5 kg. Here you can see the variety of amber products-ornaments and objects of everyday life. There can be long to wander and look at the pieces of the frozen Sun.

  • 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.
