This was on the idea of Plymouth Plantation, a peek into how people lived in the old days. This open-air museum was featured on the show The Amazing Race. Unlike Plymouth Plantation where you walk around and see the different things, here you drive from...More

Lithuania through the ages in miniature, more a country park with traditional buildings, this is a great place to go walking while learning about the history of the country. Nothing really original in some respects but getting it all together, add some beautiful locations and...More

We went here with our former Lithuanian exchange student so our visit had a special meaning for us. He pointed out that how primitive life was even in 1900 for most of Lithuania, say perhaps to life in the USA at the same time period....More

Hello, my son, who lives in Vilnius, bought a small handmade stitched banner that said, "Lietuva" to give to me as a Christmas present. He visited your museum at Rumsiskes last fall and purchased it in one your buildings from a woman who had made it. It was lovely, and since my grandparents were born in Lithuania, I was very happy to receive it. Unfortunately, I have either lost or misplaced it. I feel very sad about this, so I was wondering if I could purchase another one. Please let me know if it would be possible to purchase another handmade banner. Thank you very much. Best regards, Debra Blute
