Amber Museum

If you are looking for amber, Falsterbonäset is the right place to look after. During stormy weather, the amber is flushed upon the beach and then you can go ahead and look for the "Baltic Sea Gold".
The stones, with their fine golden color, were one of our very first commodities, and several jewelry and amulets of amber has been found along the Viking trade routes. Fifteen years ago, Leif Brost decided to open the Amber Museum in Kämpinge. At that time, he had milled and sold his own amber jewelery from amber he had found himself. Today, Leif Brost instead purchases this fancy stone from all over the Baltic Sea.

"Frozen history" is one of the departments called at the Amber Museum. Ambers with encapsulated insects are shown here; Including a spider who was just in the process of approaching his prey and an insect couple who unfortunately got stuck in the sticky resin. The exhibition is constantly expanding and the museum itself has been expanded. The house is built by, among other things, driftwood and only the building itself is worth a visit.

At the museum you will also get tips on where to find this coveted hardened resin and how to see if it really is a real amber in your hand. Something that did not prove to be an amber is the giant lump of modest 238 kilos, which stands in the entrance. What was thought to be a real catch when it was pulled out of the sea at Gotland in 1988 turned out to be too young to be called amber. Nevertheless, it has its place of honor at the museum, when it was thought for a little while to be one of the golden nuggets of the Baltic Sea .
The Amber Museum has about 45 minute long tours for excursion groups and there is the possibility of guided tours in Swedish, Danish, English or German.
