The “Alka” is an outdoors museum exhibiting the Lithuanian domestic life and preserving the authenticity and cultural heritage of Samogitian architecture. Its vast 8.5 ha area contains 16 authentic Samogitian buildings built from the second half of 19th to the beggining of the 20th century. The exhibition is divided into three seperate parts: the residences of a wealthy farmer, a middle-class villager, and a peasant. Each one of the residence expositions are different, reflecting the domestic differences between each of historic Lithuanian socio-economic groups.
While in the museum, you can also take a ride on a carriage driven by a special Samogitian-bred horse (so-called žemaitukai). Also, do not forget to take part in the educational activities and plays offered by the “Alka” museum.
