If you don't want to climb stairs then this is not for you! It was interesting to read about Amber but the building it is in is amazing. It also houses the armoury which was sadly not open.

The amber history and exhibitions are very interesting. The visit to the prison cells and most of all the enactment of the tortures is very impressive. Not recommendable for children nor soon after eating.
