  • 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.

  • At the weekend with girlfriend visited Kaunas and certainly since the beginning of the trip we planned to go to this museum. The weather was rainy, wet and overcast in the street. And going to the Museum, plunge into another world. Back to school, where she studied at the music school, was familiar with the works of Ciurlionis. I wanted to see his paintings. After visiting the Museum, learn more and that, in addition to music and paintings, there is an exposition of photographs of the artist. After seeing the exhibit, it's nice to sit quietly and listen to the music composer in the Hall. You can choose a piece to listen to. From visiting the Museum remain the fondest memories.

  • 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
