The amber history and exhibitions are very interesting. The visit to the prison cells and most of all the enactment of the tortures is very impressive. Not recommendable for children nor soon after eating.

I understand that museums have to have set temperatures for the exhibits, however the heat was stifling, so much so that we couldn't continue viewing and had to leave the museum. Glad it was Monday that we visited as it was free entry.

Good way to while away a couple of hours if it's raining or you like amber (I do). Some interesting pieces made out of amber and lots of nooks and crannies to explore. At the end there's a shop to buy- you guessed it -...More
