M. K. Čiurlionis National Museum of Art

  Putvinskio 55      (+370) 37 22 94 75     more than a year ago

Founded by state decree in 1921 and finally opened 15 years later, this fine museum inside a classic interwar building was named after—and displays much of the work of—the Polish-speaking painter and composer Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis (1875-1911). Surplus to the eponymous artist's works are a couple of beautiful permanent exhibitions and a host of temporary shows in several different halls spread around the building. The well stocked in-house shop sells a wide range of goods that make excellent gifts and souvenirs.

The small theater playing Ciurlionis' music was a great way to end a visit to the museum. I sat there for a few minutes, lulled by the joyous, peaceful music, when someone in some back room began to beat a metal file cabinet to death with a sledgehammer - - or at least that's what it sounded like. Definitely worth a visit, as the museum shows just how much of an Eastern European renaissance man Ciurlionis was, and how much he achieved artistically before his premature death.
