So many pretty things! This museum is dedicated to all things amber. From jewelry to pictures to a violin all made from amber! Worth a visit to see these unique beauties.

The Amber Museum is placed inside the old fort. Exposition is not very big. Describes the nature of the amber, history of amber jewelry. A lot of nice jewelry. Souvenirs. Very good.

The housing of museum- an old tower- is a nice place to see. One of not many sights in Kaliningrad which is visitors with disabilities friendly. It is the amber-lover paradise. You will find here stunning amber masterpieces and copies of world-famous Amber Room
