This is indeed a hidden gem, easily affordable, and refreshingly small but varied. Folk art... read more

We were very lucky to have come across this lovely museum. Apart from the very wide and mind boggling variety of Amber there were exhibitions on local pottery trends and old historic furniture. Allow 2 hours plus depending on how many different exhibitions are on.

I particularly enjoyed seeing the history...More

The exhibition showcases some interesting works of Russian craftmanship, but I found it too centered on recent art and the collection far from complete. The building is a former palace and nice. The place is open till late on some days of the week.
