The M.K. Ciurlionis Art Museum is a wonderful place to visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Located on Putvinskio street, it's just a couple of blocks up from Kaunas' principal avenue. During his short life (1875-1911), Mikalojus Ciurlionis created dozens of highly distinctive paintings as well as a large number of original musical compositions, particularly for piano but... More

The museum is located in the very centre of the town. It is dedicated to Čiurlionis, a famous Lithuanian artist and composer. Every Picture of the artist gets deep into you and touches your heart and feelings. You can also hear his music in the museum.

Museum is currently (summer 2014) going under renovations and not everything is currently on display, but the paintings by Ciurlionis are like nothing I'd seen before, haunting, visionary and well worth a visit.

Love this place. He is a great philosopher-artist. And an incredible composer. The transfer of music room away from the pictures is a disappointment.

I keep returning to this museum, year after year. And the works of Ciurlionis never cease to amaze me. He was not only a gifted artist but also a composer, and you can hear and see how the two vocations go together when visiting this unique museum.

I enjoyed this museum but not as much as many I have visited. It was well done and I liked the music but I guess that the art did not really get me. Personal view, I know and many will differ.

I only had a short time off so I had to choose which muzeum or gallery I should visit. I never heard of M.K. Ciurlionis before I was in Kaunas, but everybody recommended a visit to this museum where you can listen to his music and see his artwork (mainly paintings). It was very interesting and a perfect way to... More

This Museun is located in the main street, in the heart of town. There are theatre plays, operetas, expositions, etc. The prices are honest and the place is really cozy.

Some parts of the museum and the collections seem to be closed currently (as of February 2nd 2014), but it doesn´t really interfere with the experience of this fascinating artist; a rough guess would be that perhaps 75 paintings or so (?) are on show, including a lot of the most famous ones. A leaflet says that the museum owns... More
