Create an itinerary including Devil's Museum
Fortified with artifacts and pieces donated by visitors, Devil's Museum houses more than 3,000 displays of devil depictions from cultures and regions across the globe. Originally begun by collector Antanas Zmuidzinavicius in his own home, the museum formed as a tribute after his death. Stop by the facility and explore three stories of artwork, focused primarily on carvings and sculptures featuring devils and other similar creatures of legend. Note that many are carved or grafted onto simple household items, giving them a personal quality. Be sure to keep an eye out for Zmuidzinavicius' own artwork, often illustrating ghastly scenes of violence and punishment doled out by devils upon those that have deceived; these are housed in an exhibit along with other devil-themed works from the nations of the former Soviet Union.

  • Ive never been to a devil museum before and I doubt I will find another one. Interesting exhibition. Make sure to read the descriptions on the cases which set out details of the individual displays.

  • Nice little museum. Fin with all the figures. The staff are really nice and speak very good english. We were handed a tablet, by which we could hear different stories about the devils.

  • Super nice museum with fabulously nice staff. It is worth doing the tour with the audio guide tablet, because every exhibit here is integrated into a fine storytelling. In our society, the devil has been more or less erased and no one remembers his actual abilities beyond "being evil", so such exhibitions are particularly unique and worth seeing!
  • An extensive collection of (mostly) contemporary devil sculptures. The museum is very hot on hot days. Sculptures are cool, but i had hoped for a little in depth view of the topic and what the devil meant throuhout the history
