In 2012 there was a programe of special museum events created called „Lithuanian Museum Route“. It aimed to provide a meaningful journey through all ethnographic regions of Lithuania, through the history of Lithuanian culture and state.
In 2012 Lithuanian Museum Route’s main idea was to reflect two hudred years of Lithuanian museology: from Dionizas Poška’s Baubliai to Lithuanian Sea Museum. Major effort has been made to reveal uniqueness of museums in Žemaitija, Aukštaitija, Dzūkija, Sūduva and Lithuania Minor.
Lithuanian Parliament announced 2013 the year of the uprising of 1863. Consequently, Lithuanian Museum Route was also dedicated to this memorial date. It was named “Historical Memory of 1863 Uprising”.
2014 was a starting point of the 5 year Lithuanian museum event cycle intended to commemorate one hundred year of reestablished Lithuanian statehood. The third Lithuanian Museum Route forged into one the best experiences of two previous Routes and was again divided into 5 ethnographic regions with one unifying theme.
In 2015 another important Lithuanian cultural dimension, folk art, was remembered and actualized through the program of Museum Route. The main goal was to share the message of richness of different regions of Lithuania and to reach audiences as wide as possible, especially young ones, through educational programs, exhibitions and various events.
Lithuanian Museum Route of 2016 invited us to discover our history of manor life. “Reflections of Manor Culture” was its name. The journey proceed through historical buildings and parks – a form of European Culture which existed and still exists alongside with ethnic Baltic heritage in such esthetically diverse and rich shapes.
