Unsuitable for disabled or movement impaired as there are 5 stories tomclimb in the old tower. However it is worth the visit to learn about the formation of amber and then to see some extraordinary exhibits. The shop isbabkittle pricey.

Charming collection of natural amber pieces and amber creations arranged in the old building. Steep staircase. No possibility for a lift. One can learn about amber types and see most amazing amber creations, like a guitar, jewlery, lamps or other objects.
