Devils Museum (Velnių Muziejus)

This bizarre museum owes its existence to eccentric Antanas Žmuidzinavičius (1876-1966) who collected over 2,000 depictions of devils from all over the world. There are wood carvings, soft toys and loads of references to the devilish influence in music and alcohol. Of particular interest are the Hitler and Stalin devils, doing the dance of death over a helpless Lithuania. Dating from Soviet times, Stalin wasn't in fact depicted as a devil, he just happens to look that way.

An extremely unique and a one of a kind museum! Thousands of devils are on display from all over the world! I highly suggest a guided tour in your native language. Cost is 40 Litas.....but it is VERY informative!

I first visited here in 1995, and re-visited in 2008, and it didn't look like the museum had changed much, but a devil museum is probably unique throughout the museum world, and the collection is quite vast. Definitely a must see in Kaunas, and it's located close to a couple of other museums, so you can do a clean sweep of the area in one afternoon.

He may have happened to look that way, but he was a devil as well.
