A PIECE OF HISTORY COMBINED WITH EVENTS

The House of Histories is the newest and most modern branch of the National Museum of Lithuania and the building dates back to the second half of the 18th century. The House of Histories is a space which invites visitors to experience history not as something fixed in the past but as integral to the reality we are creating today. The first and second floors of the building house exhibition spaces, as well as Education Hall, which can seat up to 75 persons.

Here visitors can explore and discuss different ways of understanding history. Things that happened in the past are studied by historians, archaeologists and anthropologists, but they also inspire today’s designers, artists, photographers and other creators. This whole synthesis of differences is brought together by a curator into a new work – an exhibition.

The basement floor of the building houses a vault and exhibition space containing collections related to 18th–20th century Lithuanian folk architecture, interiors, and tools. During special excursions visitors can become acquainted with distinctive Lithuanian ethnographic museum-pieces, each of which has its own unique place.
