Amber inclusions looks so great! I took some photos, so I can show them to you. By the way, nice amber shop is located on... More

I first went here with friends, and then returned during a planned tour. With friends, we explored the basement (where the museum is located) and had a great time reading the labels, checking out the varieties of amber, in terms of both colors and different critters trapped inside. It was a small but smart place. The upstairs is a amber... More

It's pretty fancy as a store, although I am sure the quality of stones are high. But what's really worth seeing are the large examples of amber with insect and other inclusions and the amazing large pieces made of/with amber. Worth a visit. The staff are also not pushy at all and are fine with 'just' browsers.

I visited this museum as part of a day's guided walk around the old town. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and learnt a lot about amber mining and refining, which came in handy when I visited other museum that had displays of amber

If you understand value of amber but do not know very much about its history you simply must visit this place. If you are searching for exclusive works from amber for gifts or for yourself you also are welcome here.

The collection is wide enough, there are some pretty details, like a big lens to look at the insects inside amber pieces, or naming of amber in different languages. Nice bijou, a lot of colors, including the rare types of amber.

I would have never picked this as a place to visit. However it was part of my private tour of Vilnius and it turned out to be amazing. As you walk in you are actually in the store. Displayed is a full array of jewelry made from the many varieties of amber. Amber is in abundance in the Baltic countries.... More

This museum ould only be of interest to a geological specialist or someone totally fascinated by amber. But it informed of very little other than the prices of the great grange of pieces they had on display.
