The only museum in Great Britain dedicated entirely to the history of amber. A specially created museum to tell the story and history of amber, by Astrid and Robin Fournel, owners of the oldest and largest amber specialist retailer in the UK. Story boards explain how amber was formed around 50 million years ago and it’s uses through the ages. With exhibits and carvings from around the world and FREE entry, The Amber Museum is an attraction not to be missed! Open 9-5 Monday to Saturday and 11-4 Sundays and Bank Holidays

The Museum has artefacts, carvings, jewellery and objects d’art from the Whole Amber World; both modern and antique. It also houses many large examples of Amber found on the English coast – including the largest at 2.2kilo.
