Owner description: This small amber museum has a cheap gift shop with various objects made from amber.

If you are planning to buy amber, go here first, for sure. It is a lovely, peaceful small museum and you really learn a lot about amber and what to look for if you want to buy something. I also thought their designs and prices were the best we saw in SCC. The staff are very helpful.

Nice place to know the history of ambar, at the end they project a video where they teach you how to differentiate real ambar.

Is a very small place but i can tell staff is really commited, even the director of the museum is making sure you are having a good visit.

I paid my 20 pesos to visit the amber museum and it took me only 15 minutes to see all that I wanted to see. There is a public rest room in front of the museum where a person can pay to use if needed.

Look at your own collection of stuff, well maybe worth some of your time, go find out, but do not make it a priority. The Outdoors and Mercado tipico are way better.
