The Open-Air Museum of Lithuania
is one of the largest ethnographic open-air museums in Europe. It was established on the picturesque shores of Kaunas Lagoon in Rumšiškės in 1966 and opened for visitors in 1974.
Set amidst 176 hectares of rolling hills and forest, the museum has been laid out to represent Lithuania's ethnographic regions by way of placing traditional village homes and agricultural buildings along a 7 km route, many of which operate during summer with a host of activities including the baking of bread, the wearing of traditional costumes, pottery workshops and other old-fashioned pursuits. The total area contains 140 buildings from the 18th–19th century with the restored original interiors and surroundings. The centre of the museum is a small town with its characteristic buildings in which pots are rolled, amber and wood products are produced. Further from the ethnographic homesteads, on the north-western outskirts of the museum's territory, there is the Aristavell Manor House.
The territory of the museum is a very popular place where ethnographic festivals are celebrated and folk song and dance concerts are held. You will have entertainment according to the ancient traditions of Lithuanian Rumsiskes all year round. The guided tours, educational programs, calendar feasts, folk group concerts are being organized in the museum.
