About museum

In 1997, Yan Serzhantov and Valery Danchenko, together with the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and the American Museum of Natural History in New York, created the Amber is a Window to the Past exhibition. In 2003, part of the collection was exhibited at the International Caribbean Amber Museum; in 2016 it moved to Moscow, to the Museum of Decorative Arts under the name the Amber Park.

The exhibition presents completely unique and unusual pieces of jewelry from different ages, made from Baltic amber, stones with inclusions, and amber drops. An innovative method for producing extract from amber using powerful electric discharges is demonstrated. The museum keeps a unique Amber Room casket, made by the same group of craftsmen who restored the amber room in St. Petersburg in 1982.
