Overview

At the Amber Museum we share amber - the most beautiful thing we've got. We have gathered unique exhibits that show natural beauty of amber and prove its uniqueness, as well as providing valuable information about amber creation and the history of its treatment. The exhibits will also make one more sensitive to amber beauty and variety of its forms and hues. It will become clear here, why amber is the most beautiful of all stones.

You find a lot of Amber being sold in and around Krakow. This museum gives an insight into the industry, and at the end you can visit the shop and buy a piece.

Here you can! The museum is a part of a jeweler's exhibition but anyway it's nice to take a look. You can also order a cup of coffee there.

Interesting and informative displays about Amber. Staff could not have been more helpful. After looking for an amber necklace in various shops and stalls, I ended up buying some green Amber here. Excellent choice, competitive prices, certificate of authenticity.

My wife loves amber, and I collect minerals. This is a store which has a large room devoted to incredible pieces of amber and what can be made from it. The beauty of the jewelry and other items are amazing.
