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.

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. The Lithuanian country life open-air museum contains dwelling houses and commerce buildings transferred from the 5... More

Choose a dry day for a trip to this wonderful open air museum. A series of reconstructed genuine historical buildings are set in several acres of countryside. It is a great place to take a picnic and it makes a cheap family day out. Children can learn about history. There are spaces for them to run around without disturbing other... More

Rumsiskes Open-Air Museum is located some 20 km outside Kaunas. When you get there you can see how people of Lithuania lived many years ago. All houses there are authentic brought there from different regions of the country. If the weather is fine you'll have a lot of fun there.
