Amber Museum Copenhagen

Copenhagen Amber Museum is one of the most recognized amber museums in the world. The museum is located in Kanneworff’s House in Nyhavn, one of Copenhagen’s oldest buildings, which dates back to 1606.

The museum takes you on a fascinating journey through the natural and cultural history of amber and holds an impressive collection of raw amber stones, exclusive amber jewellery and unique amber artefacts. Some stones contain plants and insects that were trapped in the resin millions of years ago, and thus amber is also a unique window to a bygone world.

Learn how amber was formed 30-50 million years ago and how it ended up on the coasts of Denmark. Get a glimpse of life in the ancient Scandinavian forests by exploring the large collection of preserved plants and insects that were trapped in the resin millions of years ago. Dig into the fascinating story of how our Scandinavian ancestors distributed amber as a unique and beautiful natural material to the rest of Europe, and see the museum’s rare collection of amber antiques and artefacts.
