  • Not big, but worth to visit museum with beautiful pictures of most famous Lithuanian Painter and composer Ciurlionis. You can also listen his music there 
  • Museum artist-Symbolist, that Lithuanians are very proud of. nondescript paintings that start to play with new colors when the Guide says about them. The girl told me a very interesting and inspiring. Without a guide, nothing would have been understandable.

  • This museum is a must if you're anywhere nearby. Ciurlonis paintings are very well presented as well as a good exhibition about his life and some on his music
  • It's worth to visit the museum even if you are not interested in paintings. Čiurlionis had a very unique style, so paintings are not boring to watch. Museum itself is nice and modern.
  • The museum is very neat, but the exposition is not too big, still a nice place to visit in Kaunas
  • Interesting topic and exhibits, but museum itself quite unorganized and monotonous. Could be better.
  • Nice exhibition - unfortunately a lot of it is currently closed for refurbishment
