A great example of how ratings on Tripadvisor sometimes can be quite inaccurate. Most people who even come to this museum in the first place do so because they love Ciurlionis. So it is no wonder that they enjoy the museum in his honor. I myself found the museum to be quite average, even though I am a bit of... More

An interesting innovative Lithuanian Artist should be seen by anyone visiting Kaunas. I found the museum very informative and comprehensive on Clurionis' work.

If you want to know about a country, learn about its art and artists. Ciurlionis is unfortunately little-known outside of Eastern Europe; and so in his native country, you have an excellent opportunity to experience his sketches and music compositions. I Do get the audio guide. It allows you to hear his music while you learn of his visual art.

Those who are into painted art this place is outstanding- Ciurlionis was the greatest Lithuanian painter who will touch your feelings. He was a real genius. Place is definitely worth visiting. The museum is right in the center of the city, paired with war museum, which you should visit too.

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.
