An interesting museum that tells the history of amber. Some lovely artefacts in the museum. I found the Art Deco room to be the most interesting.

The exhibition tells the story of Amber in a very accessible manner. The interpretations panel,the ones which do give English translations, are well laid out. The building was an old prison and the exhibition and video at the end of the tour was very interesting.
You should not visit this museum if you have even the slightest issue with mobility as there are about 100 steps many of which are narrow and worn.
Cannot give a five star rating because apart from the woman taking the entry money all of the staff were surly. Many were on their phones, reading books and certainly not willing to engage with visitors. Smile do not think they know the meaning of the word.

I'm from Lithuania and we have a pretty big Amber museum that I always considered to be not that impressive. This one located in the prison tower is even less enjoyable. I find it weird to have an Amber museum in a former prison tower, that has so much potential and history to offer on itself. Yes, there is an exhibition about that as well, which was really interesting to me, but after it you are directed to the court room, where you find amber again...

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of interesting amber exhibits, some massive "stones" of it, even bigger than the ones we have in Lithuania, but I found the exhibition itself being a bit too shallow. Combine this with the fact that most of the information is in polish and it's in a prison tower, it felt weird.

All things considered, I enjoyed the visit, therefore I will rate it 3/5.

Not just excellent displays of amber but it's history and mining techniques too, well worth a visit to find out what the amber you see all around you is all about and how it came to be so popular, the history of mining it to the modern day methods used

I popped in here for a look around and it was interesting enough, but I didn't find that I was in for very long. I think that there were other parts to it, such as dungeons, but they weren't open the day I was there.
