Free museums – every last Sunday of the month

Museum permanent exhibitions will be open free of charge to all visitors from the beginning of this year, every last Sunday of the month! At the end of last year former minister of culture Liana Ruokytė-Jonsson approved a new wider model for free museum visits – in 2018 this model was applied for school students only. According to the former minister, this decision is very suitable to families, who can visit museums all together on these Sundays, free of charge.

As of now, this model is applied to national and state museums subject to the Ministry of culture, though the same model is recommended to museums subject to other ministries and municipalities. Museums that are usually closed on Sundays, will also open their doors to visitors every last Sunday of the month.
