Everything but the below was great. Lack of any directions, info, etc to get to the place was a drawback. As is the distance from one place to another, not for a tired tourist.

A cross between the Black Country Museum and Avoncroft (if you're from the Midlands) but on a huge site, we travelled by riverboat from Kaunas. In four distinct sections it seeks to portray rural architecture and ways of life in old Lithuania by way of a range of buildings and a village, all reconstructions. Some of the buildings were open... More

An informative visit to this historic location and certainly recommended for visitors to Kaunas to spend half a day wandering around a world of yesteryear. Life for Lithuanians prior to the Soviet union is on display in a genuine setting. The website states it is best visited by car and traveling there by public transport, as we did, certainly had...

We visited the place as a group. Even though it was raining, we still loved it. Nice location, different villages spread in the woods; wooden buildings and small city with church really worth seeing.
