  • Lots of very detailed and cool information about Lithuanian currency and others. There's also a bunch of interactive activities on screens throughout the museum. All in all great experience, and easy to spend 2 hours there!
  • Free entry (just my price point), plenty of information to read up about the history of currency in Lithuania and other parts of the world. Did not expect a coin pressed bookmakr for free, too. Not a big museum, but spent about an hour exploring its 2 levels. Definitely recommended if you've time.
