Art Center of Baltic Amber (Sv. Mykolo str. 12, Vilnius)

11 Dec 2023

In the Museum of Art Center of Baltic Amber, you can see an amber road, which is presented originally and artistically: drops of amber dripped down the pine; a variety of raw amber pieces caught by Lithuanian amber fishermen in the stormy Baltic Sea; a variety of amber colours and shapes.

Inclusions create special value: like through the ship porthole, you view the world of flora and fauna that existed 50 million years ago and got conserved safely in amber. The most valuable and unique exhibit is a lizard in the amber piece. A very important object in the museum is the sanctum of the pagans. It tells us about the ritualistic places of pagans and the rites. Amber was an essential part of these rituals. It is believed that amber could pacify raging gods, and make dreams and expectations come true. You will get an opportunity to see cultural layers of Vilnius dating back to the 15th century, various archaeological findings and authentic ceiling paintings can be seen.

The Art Center of Baltic Amber, a member of the Fine Crafts Association in Vilnius, offers a unique experience for visitors. You can witness one of the oldest crafts, the processing of amber, in a modern studio. Explore archaic processing tools and even have the opportunity to create your amber amulet, believed to bring beauty and protection according to our ancestors.

This initiative aims to showcase the art of amber processing and share its cultural significance with a wider audience.
