Amber Museum

The location in the heart of Krakow is not accidental: the capital of Lesser Poland is - right after Gdańsk, called the World Capital of Amber - most strongly associated with this stone characteristic for Poland. Although there are many "amber" places on the map of Krakow, the Amber Museum is certainly the most important one.
Why? Because hundreds of unique exhibits have been gathered here showing the natural beauty of Baltic amber, testifying to its uniqueness. They provide valuable knowledge about the formation and history of processing this stone, sensitize to its beauty and the variety of forms and colors. The exhibition shows why so many people in the world think that it is amber that is the most beautiful among all stones. All this makes the Amber Museum a unique place to which you want to come back.

In addition to the permanent exhibition entitled "Amber - its beauty and history", with exhibits borrowed from the Earth Museum of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, we invite you to temporary exhibitions (ancient and modern art). For children and schoolchildren we offer a guided tour program tailored to their needs. In 2019, a plan to visit our Museum was created, tailored to the needs of the blind and visually impaired.

The Amber Museum not only conducts educational and popularizing activities. In the gallery at the Museum, you can learn about the design of contemporary artistic products and buy traditional and modern jewelry and applied art made of amber. The history and contemporary fate of the fossilized resin before 40 million years will be additionally brought closer to the reading room, in which interesting amber publications have been collected. In the summer season, the ideal place to explore the secrets of amber described in the literature will be the cafe garden located at the back of the Museum. Pleasant moments spent reading or inspiring conversation will be additionally enhanced by aromatic coffee.
