Hi! I would recommend to visit the museum in winter time - at the celebration of Shrove Tuesday on February 6, 2016. People in masks going on the spree, baking pancakes, making hotchpotch, dancing, singing and playing games, fight of Lašininis (a Porker) and Kanapinis (a Hempen Man), burning of More (a symbol of winter evil)! You are very welcome!
