Inspirock Rating:
3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
Fortified with artifacts and pieces donated by visitors, Devil's Museum houses more than 3,000 displays of devil depictions from cultures and regions across the globe. Originally begun by collector Antanas Zmuidzinavicius in his own home, the museum formed as a tribute after his death. Stop by the facility and explore three stories of artwork, focused primarily on carvings and sculptures featuring devils and other similar creatures of legend. Note that many are carved or grafted onto simple household items, giving them a personal quality. Be sure to keep an eye out for Zmuidzinavicius' own artwork, often illustrating ghastly scenes of violence and punishment doled out by devils upon those that have deceived; these are housed in an exhibit along with other devil-themed works from the nations of the former Soviet Union.

  • In the café to go I do not advise. The food is average in taste. Asked for menus in English. We hardly found. But it was useless because the waitress did not speak English and Russian. We helped a visitor who spoke Russian. Maybe it's only us "lucky". In the Museum is full of Devils. It was interesting to look at. About the time donated. But the atmosphere is quite bleak because of the subject matter and lighting. On susceptible individuals could have a negative impact. The cashier was very friendly, had advised other attractions. You can buy souvenirs.
