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.

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.
