Vilnius Lithuania Museums
The old town of Vilnius is one of the best preserved historical centres in Lithuania and a delight wherever you look. A short bus ride will take you to one of the oldest and most popular tourist attractions in the world, the Old Town Museum with its many museums.
The museum is housed in a huge building that once served as the KGB headquarters in Vilnius, and today you can admire wonderful pieces in the Amber Museum in Vilnius. Among the exhibits are authentic photographs discovered in the Vilnius Ghetto immediately after the war, which are now kept in this museum. This harrowing exhibition documents the lives and deaths of thousands of Lithuanian Jews during World War II. If you do not know this non-museum, it can be called a non-museum, because it is not a museum at all, but rather a collection of artefacts and artifacts from the history of Lithuania.
The museum is located at Darius Girenas airfield, which has been in operation since 1915 and is under the authority of the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture. Alternatively, the MO Museum is a privately owned museum, but has no permanent exhibition rotating the collection.
There is currently no direct train from Vilnius to Warsaw, so buses are the only way to get from Vilnius to Warsaw. At the same time, you can also stop at the Museum of the Lithuanian National Museum in the Old Town, but only for a few minutes. Flights land at Vilnius International Airport, which is located in the immediate vicinity of Vilnius Vilnius Airport and the Museum.
Start your visit at the Museum of the Lithuanian National Museum in the Old Town or visit the village of Vilnius to see what a typical "Lithuanian village" looks like. You can also start from the museum in Vilna, the capital of Lithuania and the capital of Poland.
For the sake of fans of a particular sport, one should focus on Lithuania, but there is also a lot of information about the history of football in the country, from the very beginning of the game to the present day. For the sake of all fans, especially on the field, a strong focus should be placed on Latvia, Lithuania and the Czech Republic. There are also a number of other museums, such as the Lithuanian National Museum in Vilna, the Vilnius Art Museum and the Lithuanian Museum of Sport and Culture.
Anyone who visits Vilnius as a child should be aware that some of the museums can be quite disturbing, especially the exhibits in the basement. I chose the Kernave Museum, which you can visit on a day trip to Vilnius, as its collection is a great source of information about the history and culture of Lithuania from its beginnings to the present day. It provides a very good overview of all the major museums of this kind in Vilnius and presents them in a variety of styles and themes.
There are also some more expensive museums in Vilnius, which are quite affordable for the city, but worth the price. In my opinion, Trakai Castle is one of the most important must-see attractions - visit museums for history buffs when you travel to Lithuania. Magical museums are a good thing if you want to have fun, especially for children, but also for adults.
The history of the Jewish Museum in Lithuania dates back to 1913, and the first exhibition took place in April 1941. The museum was called the Lithuanian Art Museum until 1966 and was granted the status of a national museum by the new Lithuanian government in January 1997. Of particular importance are pieces from the Soviet era, which were omitted from other museum collections after Lithuania gained independence in 1990. At that time it was known as the Vilnius State Art Museum, but in 1989 the government of Soviet Lithuania allowed it to reopen as an independent museum.
The Polish government, which at that time controlled Vilnius, decided in 1933 to found the Vilnius City Museum. On the initiative of A. Valeskos, who was appointed director, the Lithuanian Museum of Art's collections were transferred from the sunken Oginskiai Palace to the Town Hall (which had burst on the orders of the Vilians) in the Old Town Hall of the city, where the House of Artists now stands. The Palace of Art Exhibitions was built in 1929 on the ground floor of the first Lithuanian Town Hall, next to Vilna, and in 1934 on a new site in the Vilnsiussaal, where the Artists "House is now operated.
The Lithuanian Art Museum is also responsible for the preservation of the works of the Vilnius National Art Museum and other museums in the city. The enthusiastic owners of the museum have long supported art museums founded in Lithuania in 1933, but also in Poland and the United States. In addition to the Art Museum, it also housed a number of other cultural institutions, such as the Museum of History, a Museum of Children's Books, an Art Gallery, art galleries, museums and galleries of art and art history.
