There is a lot of personal history stored here and it's clear that the people who work/volunteer here have a passion. It's very small and a little dark and cramped but well worth the visit! more »
A unique look into the fascinating history and culture of Lithuania. The bottom floor is filled with artifacts documenting the history and culture. The upper floor is a more contemporary account of the lives of Lithuanian, and other Baltic state, immigrants and the effects of World Wars one and two. Well worth your time if you are at all interested in the history of the region, American immigration or the World Wars.
This museum rocks!!! So much interesting and valuable information on Lithuania before and during the 2 great world wars Staff was extremely helpful and nice even got to meet the guy who started it all!! Very nice guy! Totally recommend this place to anyone!!!
