  • the Museum of this institution is very difficult to call. a large part of the "exhibits" done on the knee. by and large the impression that took money for logging in the gift shop.

  • One of the days of our stay in Amber was grey and rainy, and my husband and I decided to visit the Museum "Amber Castle. I must say, for the tiny village of its own Museum. And here is not just a couple of rooms and several lounges with storefronts filled with exhibits. Lovingly preserved what was once part of the history of Palmnikena: beer mugs, dinnerware, figurines, copies of paintings by the famous and not-so-artists, furniture, coins. Special interest we aroused photos of prewar settlement, tools to help excavate amber. In basements exposed bricks of different castles of East Prussia. Part of the preserved castles, but most in ruins. Huge bricks allow us to imagine what powerful and reliable these structures. There are also instruments of torture with a description of how they were used. Behind the Museum is another building of the same large stone. Perhaps there were warehouses or stables. It is in a State of disrepair-roof failed. But come and see all the same worth. So the Museum can be enjoyable and informative.

  • The Museum is housed in an old Castle, built around the 13 century, part was restored in modern times. The exposition is not very big, but interesting, the enthusiasm of local historians. Knowledgeable staff to answer questions. Well the Castle and has a castle and throne of the local feudal, and torture, in a Word, all home-made, as in the middle ages. Interesting booths, which presented the ethnographic, mythological and jetimologicheskaja information, one way or another, related to the history of the Castle and surroundings.

There are shops selling amber crafts. There is even a workshop where produce amber products. A place worthy of visiting not only local vacationers, but specially riding from other settlements.

  • Develop museum enthusiasts, the exhibition presents various household items found during excavations. Created many different exhibits re-create various interery middle ages. Part of the exhibition posvjashhana the history of the village. There is a souvenir shop and products made of amber. I'd call this a local history museum. Entrance fee 100 USD. adult ticket and 50rub. children's. For that kind of money, even a very good Museum. The exposition is located in the basement of the Castle and its two floors. There is an amber processing workshop and watch her work can be viewed.
