Historical afternoon

It would be delightful day if you like Lithuanian history, are interested in military and want to spend your times to learn something new.

The War Museum is very well designed, passing through all periods of war since long before the existence of the state of Lithuania. There you can find a lot of pieces used in the battles such swords, armors, rifles, uniformes, spears, cannons, machine guns, models of how they displayed their units and tactics in Battles. And it takes 3 hours.

Cozy and small war museum, but with modern expositions. Perfect time spending during rainy days. You spend just more then one hour to pass it. Worth to visit.

I've expected more. Historical scenes weren't interesting. Models there look kind of silly. There are nice moments, where there swords and guns.

The museum tells the military history of Lithuania going back to the time of pagan tribes up to the present. There is also a section highlighting the rulers of Lithuania. Outside is the Lithuanian Memorial to the Unknown Soldier. Worth a visit if you are a history/military buff.

This very elegant modern building was opened in 1921 on February 16th, exactly three years after Lithuania first announced her independence. There are historic exhibits dedicated to the military skills of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, collections of weapons, firearms, ammunition, army uniforms, paintings of famous battles, also a comprehensive collection of 18th century pistols.
