All museum is open-air, and it is not just a borring museum in nature, prepare to stay there for all day! Museum is divided into districts with traditional lithuanian features of architecture, you are traveling from one village to another, wooden churches, old windmills...This is unique, i try myself to come back there every year.

I've been there several times and it is so much fun. The whole museum gives a feeling of an old village life back in the days, when there were no electricity and no fast nowadays communications. everyone can have their fun from youngsters to elderly.

You can see all districts' traditional architecture in one place. As it is placed in beautiful spot close to Kaunas lagoon, you can just enjoy the nature if you're not into history or architecture. A great idea to spend a day with friends or family! Choose a good weather for a visit.

Every February this museum helds one of the most spectacular event - the banning of winter. Thousands of people comes here from all across Lithuania to see deep Lithuanian traditions, various events and activities. I recommend it for everyone to see it for once. Check for their page for exact date

If you interested in how Lithuania country looks like or how looked in the past, this is great place to visit. It is really big open air museum so I would suggest to plan all day for this museum. Open air museum is not open during cold period.

Plan to spend the day. Our tour guide, on our escorted 12 day trip to Lithuania, took some liberties to honor a not so unified request, and our arrival was delayed, so we did not see as much as we had hoped to do.
