Palanga

Amber Museum

  Vytauto 17      (+370) 46 05 38 47     17 Apr 2019
Situated inside a luxurious 19th-century mansion in Palanga’s Botanical Park, this recommended museum holds over 25,000 pieces of amber of which over half have insects and plants trapped inside. Taking visitors through the entire process from collecting it on the beach to the finished product, some of the more interesting artefacts include intricately carved chess sets and a rather splendid amber tractor. Tickets also allow visitors to view some of the mansion’s other rooms complete with period furniture, luscious wall tapestries and some fine old oil paintings. Find the entrance at the bottom of the steps round the back of the building.

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.
