“Ethnocosmology – relations with the cosmic world” is a daytime excursion. Duration 1.5 h. Register by phone (+370 615 20688) because groups of similar age (e. g., pupils) are formed, families are joined with families, etc. Individual visitors and families can register too. Maximum number of people per group – 50–60. Visitors should arrive approx. 10–15 minutes early so they can purchase tickets conveniently. Individual visitors are welcome Mondays through Fridays (from 8 AM to 4 PM) and are joined with registered groups, if possible. Mondays through Fridays (after 4 PM), on Saturdays (from 10 AM to 7 PM) and Sundays (from 10 AM to 4 PM) individual, unregistered visitors may be joined with existing groups. Otherwise, if there are 1–9 visitors, a group fee of EUR 44 is paid (after working hours, on weekends and holidays).

 

During daytime excursions visitors start at the underground gallery and go up as if ascending the roots of the World Tree. Five halls contain different items that reflect humanity’s connection with the Cosmos (measurement equipment, calendars, astronomy, astronautics, search for extra-terrestrial life forms, future prospects for our civilization). The exhibition is constantly expanded with new items and our professional guides will help you get the most out of this experience.

 


 

Slides are shown on a giant screen in the hall. Here you can see various high quality photos of the universe –illustrating everything from our own planet and its uniqueness, to the furthermost galaxies. And from the hall we go 32 metres up (by stairs or elevator as required) to the observation spot. The view from here is breathtaking: six lakes and a panorama of Labanoras forest can be seen. After the excursion you can enjoy the outer exhibition and the geometric plantings by the museum’s artist Marija Kakarienė.
