Great museum!

A must visit museum in Kaunas, especially now, since it has been renovated. I am pretty sure that even those not so interested in art will appreciate Ciurlionis' works.

M. K. Ciurlionis- famouse Lithuanian painter and composer, during his short life he composed about 400 pieces of music and created about 300 paintings, as well as many literary works and poems. The majority of his paintings are housed in the museum. Take a guide to get to know more details and meaning of paintings.

This humble in setting, but absolutely AMAZING in its collection museum left me literally speechless. Never have I ever been so fascinated with the artist, the talent, the meaning... Absolutely sublime works, a true pleasure. However, don't expect the museum to look like NY Met or any other big institution - this one is modest, but it's a true gem.... More

Unique museum, really! You get nearer to artist, see his works as a whole. Excellent Information office, where you can see archive documents.

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.
