Exhibition series "Exhibit of the Month"

Event duration:
from 1 November 2019 to 6 December 2019

The series of one-showpiece exhibitions is an other way to present the extensive collection of the Kaliningrad Regional Amber Museum, which includes around 16 000 depositary items. This way of demonstrating an art piece allows specialists, its author and guests to look at it out of the context of a themed exhibition.
