Educational activity:

The educators of this program use etnic costumes, actions and language to illustrate the baking traditions and customs of the peasant household. Participants in the educational program not only observe the baking process, but also participate in this process themselves. They form loaves of kneaded bread, bake them and take their bread out of the museum. In 2020 bread baked by The Museum of Prienai Region received a national heritage product certificate.


While bread is being baked, programme participants are introduced to a long path of daily bread, from sowing rye to putting baked bread on the table



Depending on their age, various groups will be engaged in tasks which will help them feel respect for bread and live out the true meaning of the concept “holy”
