Such presentations of the modern amber art have priority for the Amber Museum. Annually the cultural institution conducts solo exhibitions of Kaliningrad amber artists, as well as presents their works at the International Contest Exhibition "Alatyr" and at the Regional Biennial of Amber Artworks. Jewellers and stone-carvers, who are members of the Kaliningrad branch of the Creative Union of Russian Artists, always take part in these projects.
