The Devil’s Museum in Kaunas, Lithuania features the Antanas Zmuidzinavicius collection of sculptures and carvings of devils from around the world, as well as witches and other mythological characters. It includes 3,000 articles of arts and crafts, fine arts and souvenirs made from materials such as wood, glass, porcelain and paper. Visitors are invited to add to the collection.
The museum was established in Zmuidzinavicius’ home after his death in 1966 and originally consisted of his 260 devil sculptures. It is now considered one of the most unique museums in the world, covering three floors. The first floor displays Lithuanian devils, many of which are painted on silk or canvas, carved in wood or made of ceramic or stone. The second floor features a large wooden devil and includes an exhibit of pebbles resembling the devil. On the third floor you will find devils from outside of Lithuania, many of which were donated by visitors to the museum.
The Devil’s Museum is located in central Kaunas, about a 30-minute walk from the train station. Trains run regularly from Vilnius to Kaunas and take just over an hour.
