This is a landmark place for Kaliningrad, because it is this city where the world’s largest amber deposit is located as well as the only enterprise processing “the sunstone” on a commercial scale. The museum is located in the city center, in a historic building of the Dohna Tower built in the middle of the 19th century, a part of the fortress complex on the shore of the Upper Pond.
The museum has a huge collection of natural amber pieces of various weight, color, and transparency as well as many items made of amber. The Russia’s largest single piece of amber weighing 4,280 grams is also stored here. After a visit to the exposition ensure to walk around the museum outside: admire the tower itself and the surrounding views.
