Learn about traditional rural life in Lithuania at Rumsiskes Open-Air Museum. Stretching 175 hectares (432 acres), it is one of the largest museums of its type in Europe and explores the four main ethnographic regions of the country: Aukštaitija, Samogitia, Dzūkija, and Suvalkija. There are about 140 buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries grouped into farmsteads, villages, and towns. Inside, the restored interiors and furnishings reflect the popular styles of the time from different social classes. Once you've finished visiting the houses, stroll among the beehives, wells, flower gardens, orchards, and monuments for further insights into the way people lived here. You can approach staff with any questions about Lithuanian customs and culture. You will have to walk a significant distance to experience all the museum has to offer, so wear sensible shoes.
