As others have commented, it would help to have some background on Lithuanian history before starting in the museum but I was able to learn a lot anyway. While most of the museum was explained in signs, there were several videos that explained important turning points in the country's history. The 5 or 6 small rooms that recreated what a... More

If there is a better deal going, show me! For 2 euros you are treated to a complete and concise history of Lithuania. It details with great precision all aspects of Lithuania's long, colorful and turbulent history. While there is a heavy focus on religion due to Lithuania's dedication to the Roman Catholic Church, all other areas are well detailed... More

Our visit to the national musuem was interesting, we learned a lot about Lithuanian history, but that requiered lots of reading. It would have been better with more signs and more interactive and exciting exhibitions and texts.

It helps to read some Lithuanian history in Wikipedia or a guidebook before delving into this compact but fascinating collection. Elements of the complicated chronology of Lithuania, the famous rulers (Mindaugas, Gediminas, Vytautas) of this once immense state, its union with Poland, and the many powers that coveted it (Teutonic Knights, Tsars, Napoleon, Kaiser Wilhelm II, Nazis, Soviets) can be...

I wasn't expecting much before the visit, but I was really impressed. I spent around 2 hours looking at the exhibitions. Really interesting and worth visiting.
