In the exposition of ethnography and folk art, you will find the most valuable

ethnographic and folk-art exhibits.

 

 

“It is true to say that in days of yore the aesthetic external world of a people would manifest itself in the form of fabric and song” (P. Galaunė). We fervently hope that this exposition of ethnography and folk art will help you live out the true meaning of this quote.

 

 

Prienai region of present days is a certain exceptional area in terms of the history of post-war battles. This is the territory where the borders of three partisan districts, namely Tauras, Dainava and Didžioji kova, met. This exposition of a partisan life is a humble means of remembering and paying homage to those whose patriotism and blood protected Lithuania.

 

 

“As if you felt the smell of blood, you sense the attacked animal’s fear and willingness to defend itself.  You’re gingerly stepping on a place where a wounded soldier might have been lying. You look around – isn’t anyone lurking for you to shoot you?” (A. Antanavičius).

 

 

The oeuvre of Justinas Marcinkevičius is presented in an interactive exhibition.
