The Amber Museum

Type: Museum
Location: city centre

Address: Main Town Hall, ul. Dluga 47
Tel: +48 58 767 91 00

The Amber Museum is a branch of the Historical Museum of the City of Gdansk and is located in the Foregate Complex of Dluga St.  The Museum takes up all the floors of the historical Prison Tower, with each floor dedicated to a different amber-related issue.

The second floor is dedicated to how amber was formed: here you can go back in time, listen to the birds singing and smell the scent of resin. One of the biggest attractions on display is Gierlowska’s Lizard, which is imbedded in a 50 x 35 x 14 mm transparent amber nugget. 

The 3rd floor presents various forms of amber processing and use, its application as a medicinal agent and examples of artistic craft. Among the most important objects here are 6 artefacts on loan from the Georg Laue Collection, which were made in Gdansk in the 17th and 18th centuries. The highlight of the exhibition is an amber cabinet. Other exhibits include a household altar with the Madonna, an altar with a cross, a chest, a candlestick and an amber plaque decorated with ivory relief.
