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 closely associated with this stone characteristic of Poland.

Why is it worth visiting us? Because unique exhibits have been collected here, showing the natural beauty of Baltic amber and testifying to its uniqueness. Every visitor will find here the answer to the question of what Baltic amber is, where to look for it and see unique nuggets with inclusions. Moreover, you can admire here a unique and perhaps one of the few - a lump of amber with a drop of water! An additional interesting feature will certainly be the comparison of how our amber differs in appearance from other resins we encounter
in a distant world.

All specimens provide valuable knowledge about the creation and history of processing this stone, making us aware of its beauty and variety of forms and colors. And where can you take a closer look at them? Well, in the BORUNI Gallery operating at the Museum, where you can get acquainted with the design of contemporary artistic products and purchase traditional and modern jewelry and applied art made of amber.

Are you curious why we talk about Baltic amber with terms such as "Baltic gold", "Polish gold", "magic stone"? Or - why is there so much of it in Kraków, which is hundreds of kilometers away from the sea? In addition to the comprehensive answer waiting for you among the museum exhibition, you will also have the opportunity to examine the authenticity of amber treasures in our Amber Laboratory.
