Easter celebrations at the Open Air Museum of Lithuania 2017

Finding out about unique traditions!

Come to the Open Air Museum of Lithuania in Rumsiskes and celebrate Easter Monday with a host of activities for all the family. Enjoy visiting old houses where traditional holiday exhibits are on display and where folk groups are singing, dancing and getting visitors to take part in the activities. Enjoy playing traditional Easter games such as “Easter golf” and rolling decorated Easter eggs, search for Easter Granny gifts, and decorate your own egg to make a unique Easter gift. Watch traditional Lithuanian lalautojai, going from farm to farm and singing good wishes to all they meet, especially to young girls who, to show their gratitude, give them artistically decorated Easter eggs. Ride on horseback, drive, play on swings or simply enjoy seeing nature awakening – which gives an added charm to this holiday.In Lithuania Easter is both the most important religious festival of the year, and also the most important secular holiday, and this is fully reflected at the Open Air Museum of Lithuania.
