Welcome! We look forward to welcoming you back to the museum. No evidence (3G rule or contact follow-up) is currently required to visit the museum. However, this can change at any time if the pandemic situation worsens. The current distance and hygiene rules continue to apply; wearing ffp2 mask indoors is also mandatory.
Reopened in August 2018, the East Prussian state museum with its new Baltic German department presents a completely redesigned permanent exhibition in addition to its varying special exhibitions. Explore amber in our own laboratory, peer from the raised hide into the vast forests of the former East Prussia, follow the path from the rise of Prussia to the foundation of the empire, learn more about the fate of the expellees after the Second World War, discover the Hanseatic era, view important art by Lovis Corinth and Käthe Kollwitz and get to know the famous Trakehner horses. Another highlight is the Baltic German department, which for the first time presents the history of the Baltic Germans in a museum. Look forward to a lively, family-friendly and varied exhibition!
In the museum shop beautiful amber jewellery and interesting specialist literature await you. The Museum café Bernstein invites you to linger with its tasty delicacies.
