Lithuanian National Museum of Art
Information about the museum
Lithuanian National Museum of Art (LNMA) is a state non-profit cultural institution. The main directions of the museum’s activities are to collect, study, restore and promote the monuments of spiritual and material culture.
The museum began to be formed in 1907, founded in 1933, granted the national museum status by the Government of Lithuania in 1997, and since 2020 it has been officially named the Lithuanian National Museum of Art. The museum is distinguished for its rich Fine Arts collection that represent old and contemporary art, applied and folk art, rare amber stone and jewellery specimens as well as other museum objects. In addition, the museum restores and preserves artworks. LNMA is an approved administrator and a recognised national training centre for implementing and managing Lithuania’s museums digitisation projects. The launch of the national project LIMIS with the aim to facilitate knowledge sharing it through the online access to museum-collection data has become an important tool to enable organising virtual exhibitions and presentation of previously hidden cultural treasures.
Cultural events and educational pursuits promote national and European cultural identity in various forms targeting diverse age and interest groups.
Lithuanian National Museum of Art unites 9 exhibition subdivisions: Vilnius Picture Gallery, Museum of the Radvilas Palace, Museum of Applied Arts and Design, National Gallery of Art, Vytautas Kasiulis Art Museum, Clock and Watch Museum, Pranas Domšaitis Gallery, Palanga Amber Museum, Pamarys Gallery.
