The Museum of Amber Inclusions

The Life in the Amber Forest exhibition is situated in the building of the University of Gdańsk, Faculty of Biology. It shows the second largest collection of amber inclusions in Poland: more than 5,500 specimens with over 13,000 animal inclusions. They are complemented by natural and colour varieties of Baltic amber, alongside various kinds of fossil and contemporary resins from all over the world. The exhibition presents the richness of amber-embedded life forms, popularized by Steven Spielberg’s movie Jurassic Park. The collection is of scientific character and therefore only selected items are on display.
