  • Were in Palanga at the end of July. It was beautiful warm weather. We decided to visit the Tyszkiewicz Palace, which houses the Amber Museum. We wanted to take a Russian-speaking guide (it is paid). But unfortunately he was at dinner. In exchange, we were offered tablets with headphones for free. Where in Russian language they talked about each hall. We learned a lot of interesting things about the former owners of the palace. A descendant of whom gave the estate to the city. The Museum of Amber impresses with its exhibits and products that made the hands of man. Amber products can be purchased at the palace. But the prices for them are high. There is a wonderful park around the palace. There are various varieties of roses, striking with their beauty. Only, the museum does not have internet for visitors.

  • I love and remember this museum since the soviet era. The museum is not big, but interesting. A beautiful building, the former Tyszkiewicz Palace, a great park. Not convenient for visitors with disabilities and children in strollers, as there is no elevator.

  • Small and cute local museum. 2nd floor is reserved for the amber. Voice guide in several languages. Clearly the guide writer is an art critic - she/he omitted a huge layer of literature, folk stories, legends and modern cultural references (especially the Jurassic Park movie). So, if you travel with kids, make your homework. Expect for ~2 hr visit. Staff is nice and helpful.
  • One of the must-to-visit places in Palanga, it offers really beautiful range of flowers, statues and of course, a museum that once used to be owned by a count Tiškevičius. Really interesting stuff, and if you get all sweaty during the heat, never worry, because the Baltic sea is just a few steps away from there and the water will surely cool you down!
