  • The exhibition is not very big, but quite interesting, have at least half an hour if you do not like to read descriptions and more that an hour if you enjoy reading and looking into fine details. Exhibition holds not only raw amber, but also amazing jewellery made some time ago and quite new designs. Also a couple of rooms or room settings as the mansion used to be. After the exploration you can enjoy a cup of beverage in a café or check out amber products for sale. The exhibition is available to handicap visitors, and not sure about the parking as the mansion is surrounded by a big park stretching to the sea.
  • Everything you ever wanted to know about amber, with beautiful examples. It isn't big, but it is very well presented and everything has English translations. There's also a Coffee shop and garden as part of a museum.
