Permanent exhibition

Event duration:
from 1 October 2004 to 31 December 2025

The Amber Museum is museum of one mineral. The display is located on three levels of the building of around 1000 square meters. Content-wise it is divided in natural-scientific and cultural-historical sections. In the first one, there are amber samples, different in their weight, colours, grate of transparency. Our collection includes the second largest "sunstone" in the world: its weight is 4 kg 280 g. The significant part of the collection contains amber samples with inclusions of insects, spiders, and vegetable remains that got into once liquid and sticky resin nearly 40 million years ago. Inclusions are an important palaeontological material used to study the past of the Earth.

In the cultural and historical section, there are adornments and household items made from amber from the neolithic age to the present day.

Especially valuable are unique artworks by masters from the 17th–18th centuries donated to the museum by the Moscow Kremlin Armoury in 1978. They are accompanied by modern copies of old amber objects, by recreated fragments of the famous, lost during the Second World War Amber Room, and original works from the 19th – first half of the 20th century. Certain exposition complexes are dedicated to the Königsberg Amber Manufactory (1926–1945) and Kaliningrad Amber Combine (since 1947) – the world's only plant that has the complete cycle of winning and working of amber.
