The ethnographical open-air museum depicts the life of
peasants during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Lithuania's four ethnographical regions are represented:
Aukstaitija, Dzukija, Suvalkija and Zemaitija. Each section
is highlighted by buildings and farmsteads characteristic
to the specific region. The interior of the farmhouses in
each section is decorated as if it was still inhabited.
Song and dance ensembles often come to Rumsiskes during
the Summer months. Traditional celebrations such as Midsummer's
Day and Thanksgiving are very popular, and usually attract
a jolly crowd. Visitors can get around the park by way of
riding or driving in a coach.
