The presence of a museum of this kind in the Colți area is due to the presence of amber deposits. These have been exploited, processed and even collected by the villagers. However, in 1972, the decision to create a museum dedicated to this resin was proposed. This was to exhibit amber pieces or raw pieces. The museum was inaugurated on 14 June 1980.

Although the exhibition space is relatively small, the Amber Museum brings together several collections that bear witness to the evolution of the natural environment. The museum houses around 200 pieces, including an amber lump weighing 1840 grams. You can also see the jewelry set given to Elena Ceaușescu on the occasion of her working visit to Buzău, as well as other black amber ornaments. In addition, the museum has a collection of mine flowers from the Baia Mare area and a collection of palaeofauna.
