  • The building itself is a sample of pure art-modern in Kaunas before WW2. Very autenthic restoration. Exposition of greatest Lithuanian symbolism painter and music composer M.K. Ciurlionis brings you to the feeling of unreal, fantastic wold of art of the edge between XIX and XX c. New exposition of Lithuanian art is opened
  • It's an interesting exposition about one of the most internationally underrated artists. I would recommend taking a guide as otherwise you might find it boring though.
  • The one place that everyone should visit to know the contemporary art of Lithuania
  • Excellent collection of Ciurlionis's works.
  • Funny and a bit scary. Good price.

Where to stay in Kaunas

Kaunas matches its artistic and fun-loving energy with numerous stylish boutique hotels. The one surprise is that many are quite affordable without sacrificing location. If you want something more budget-friendly, this youthful city has hostels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses, within the old city or close by. To experience both the city and the natural surroundings of Kaunas, opt to stay at one of the campsites, easily accessible from town via bus and offering tents or campers to rent at very reasonable rates. Be sure to book ahead when traveling to Kaunas: the city gets quite busy in the summer months, and the lack of big hotels means the small ones fill up fast.
