Open-air Museum of Rumsiskes
 

Open-air Museum of Rumsiskes

The museum was founded in 1966.
The exposition was open for visitors in 1974.
Entire buildings and artifacts from towns, villages and farmsteads from all over Lithuania have been brought to this place and reassembled. They date from the second half of the 18th to the first half of the 20th century and are well worth seeing.
Museum’s establisher – Lithuanian Republic’s Ministry of Culture.

The Lithuanian country life museum is an exposition in the open air. The core of the museum - dwelling houses and economic buildings transferred from different regions of Lithuania – Aukštaitija (Upper Lithuania, Suvalkija, Žemaitija (Lower Lithuania or Samogitia), Lithuania Minor. The buildings are grouped in complexes: farmsteads, small villages, and towns. They represent the most characteristic stylistic features, planning, constructions, and decorative elements of buildings of different epochs and social strata. 
Natural environment of the buildings is restored – fences, green plantation, sacral monuments. In 51 of these buildings an interior exposition with the equipment characteristic to some particular period is arranged – furniture, cloths, kitchen articles, working tools. In some buildings the process of some kind of work is demonstrated: making pots of clay, processing of the amber, wood, metal, weaving etc. A separate sector is devoted to the memory of the exile and torture of the Lithuanian people – wigwam, exile carriage, and monuments.
