Baltimore Lithuanian Museum
851-853 Hollins Street, Baltimore, MD 21201 - United States
The first permanent Lithuanian settlement in Baltimore did not occur until the end of the 19th century, so as to preserve the history of Lithuania and the Baltimore Lithuanian immigrant community, the Lithuanian Hall Association, Inc. established and maintains its own museum.
This small, but of historical importance, museum is housed on the third floor of Lithuanian Hall. Exhibits include Lithuanian hand crafts, wood sculptures, weaving samples, historical photographs, amber and amber jewelry, decorative eggs, musical instruments, historical books and posters. There is also a display of historical militaria, equipment, uniforms, medals and maps that cover the timeframe from the 18th century through the present.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
