Learn about the history of currency and banking at Money Museum of the Bank of Lithuania, which explores the country's economic development through the ages. Housed within the national bank, the museum introduces visitors to Lithuanian monetary history via a multitude of exhibits and displays. Wander the five different halls spread out over two stories and take advantage of the many interactive terminals (complete with touchscreens), which can give you an electronic overview of topics inside the museum. Follow Lithuania's trials in the Soviet period and its transition to a market economy, and be sure to stop by the exhibit charting Lithuanian currency from the days of the Grand Duchy to the 20th century. At the end you can test your knowledge with a quiz and, if you succeed, you'll win a souvenir banknote with your very own portrait.

  • Interesting and interactive museum. Want to know how would you cost if you were made of silver, gold or platinum? Come here!

  • Very tiny, yet very interesting. Great, little museum on the history of currency in Lithuania and around the world. All information in English. Well worth a visit. Free entrance.
  • If you like money you will love it. They have couple good interactive attractions. The down side is that place is quite small
  • Great FREE museum in Lithuania! We liked pulling out the drawers of money and reading the corresponding country facts on the big television. Cool place to see and did I mention that it was free???
