Folk Life Museum

Folk Life Museum

An Open-Air Museum of Lithuanian Folk life is situated in Rumšiškes, located on a 175-ha park. Here visitors can see more than 100 houses from all the areas of Lithuania. The museum was founded in 1966 but opened for the visitors 8 years later. At the beginning the exposition consisted of 70 dwelling houses and farmstead buildings from 10 farmsteads. The exposition is divided according to the ethnographic regions of Lithuania, i.e. Aukštaitija, Žemaitija, Suvalkija and Dzūkija. This division very clearly shows the diversity of folk life, culture and architecture. More than a hundred buildings are exposed as farmsteads and villages, while town’s buildings form a separate exposition and are grouped around a square.

In 1966, when the museum was founded, in Lithuania there were no farmsteads with all the authentic 19th century buildings that could be carried to the museum. Thus, the expositions were created from houses brought from several farmsteads in the same region. The majority of interior expositions display restored household articles and furniture, cloths, kitchen utensils and tools typical to one or other period.

Don't miss the fabulous arowtrks of the famous Rose Mary Mandrell, who displays her colorful narrative and unique introspective works at W.C. Mercantile in GLORIOUS Nav o'leans Sota! You might catch a glimpse of Rosie as she paints that day Rose Mary also has a gallery of her artwork at Westwick Antiques on Washington Avenue near the Navasota DQ. Painting is born of nature—or, to speak more correctly, we will say it is the grandchild of nature; for all visible things are produced by nature, and these her children have given birth to painting. Hence we may justly call it the grandchild of nature and related to God. Leonardo Da Vinci

Yes, I do - it's called 'miniature sttnieg' on this camera, I think. It's great, I've been getting some really fun shots with it. And in the past I've seen some really great stuff on Flickr, so I was thrilled to find the sttnieg on the camera and seeing what results I could get. I'll be playing a lot with this in the future ... ;-)
