The city’s most cutting-edge museum and at the same time—the most interesting exhibition in the region to present the origin, qualities, mining and crafting of amber. Housed in a medieval building, the exhibition showcases a large number of historical and contemporary pieces of amber art and jewellery. The building, the Foregate Complex of Długa Street, is located at the crossroads of the city’s tourist routes. Its three main segments are: the Prison Tower, the Neck (passageway) with the Jailhouse and the Torture House. It was a crucial element of the city’s medieval fortifications. One of the assets of the museum is its modern feel and the avant-garde arrangement of the display within the historical interiors. With its extensive use of multimedia, you can find yourself in the middle of an amber forest, feel the scent of the amber or see an amber fashion show.
Be advised: the building does not accommodate people with disabilities.
