Property description

Amber is particularly associated with the Baltic region due to the occurrence of its deposits in the area and historical relations (East Prussian Museum of Nature in the Green Gate existing before the 2nd World War). Particularly owing to modern activities, Gdańsk is recognised as the world capital of amber. In February 2000, based on a decision of the city authorities, President of Gdańsk Paweł Adamowicz established the Amber Museum as a Branch of the History Museum of the City of Gdańsk. The seat of the Amber Museum is the Gate Complex of the Długa Street, so-called Barbakan Gdański. The museum familiarises visitors with the history of amber. It informs on the ways of its obtaining throughout centuries, and on its properties. The museum’s collection includes: – unique collections of amber pieces – amber products from the Neolithic to the modern times – multimedia exhibitions The Amber Museum also includes an exposition of three prison cells. There you can see how prisoners were prepared for execution in the medieval times, what tools of torture were used, and what a typical cell looked like. The Museum is open for visitors from Tuesday to Sunday. Entry is free of charge on Tuesday.
