Palanga Amber Museum is a
subdivision of the Lithuanian Art Museum. It was
established on August 3, 1963 in the former
mansion of count Feliksas Tiškevičius
(1870–1932). The mansion was designed by the
German architect Franz Schwechten (1840–1924)
and was built in 1897. It is surrounded by a
park of 101,3 ha, which was designed in 1897 by
the well-known French landscape architect Eduard
Francois Andre (1840–1911).
In recent years the museum has been attempting
to expand its functions. Not only amber attracts
visitors here, but also a variety of cultural
events. The outstanding Lithuanian artists
perform concerts in the Fireplace Chamber. For
more than thirty years a series of concerts
called „Midnight Serenades“ have taken place on
the terrace of the mansion.
The Amber Museum has been visited by more than 8
million people from all over the world.

May, 2011 a new exposition of amber was opened.
The exposition was designed by the director of
the Lithuanian Art Museum Romualdas Budrys. His
conuslatnt were Dr Vladas Katinas and Dr Sigitas
On the ground floor of the manor an exposition
of the historical interiors is opened. There one

Amber is being presented in renovated halls in
new glass showcases designed particularly to
this new amber exposition. One can see
approximately 5 000 exhibits presenting the
amber from different angles both of natural
sciences and cultural history.
