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.

Its a beautiful open-air museum of old Lithuanian villages which takes you back in time. The area is quite big so If the weather is good be prepared to walk a lot and take some snacks with you or even get a picnic basket.

There are also many wonderful artisans to show you their works... More

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
