Amber Museum. Lithuanian Art Museum Department [Gintaro Muziejus]

Amber Museum. Lithuanian Art Museum Department
Situated inside the fabulous 19th-century neo-Classical former mansion of Count Tiškevičius (Pol. Tyszkiewicz), this exemplary museum holds some 25,000 pieces of amber of which over half have animals and plants trapped inside. Telling the fascinating story of Baltic Gold, this is a wonderful place to spend an hour in and is highly recommended for keeping children entertained. The back of the mansion features a famous rose garden, and the mansion itself also hosts the occasional concert and recital.

Admission 8/4 lt. Note that the musuem is undergoing renovation, due to be completed at the end of 2014. While 80 per cent of the exhibits remain on display, the admission price will be reduced by half as long as work continues, to 4/2 lt.

Amber Museum. Lithuanian Art Museum Department Comments

  • This museum was interesting even to an amber ingrate like myself. Lots of big, interesting chunks of the peculiar rock. Good postcard selection at the gift desk, too. Take a walk behind the palace through the park down to the coast line and avoid the tacky Palanga bathing crowd on the beaches nearer town.
