There is nothing similar in Lithuania, it is the only museum of its kind where you can learn all about fishing traditions, and see the accumulated ethnographic collection of lake fishing. It is a unique place where you can see and hear everything related to fishing in the lakes: from various fishing gear to the rarest fish living in the lakes, you can get acquainted with archaic fishing as this business has changed over the years. The oldest exhibit is an impressive 4-meter-long rod drawn from the bottom of the lake in the 15th century. The museum exhibits old eel catching devices, ancient nets, fishing-basket, resistors, hoop nets, and automatic fishing rods. Flax and hemp fibre, the main raw material for knitting nets, are also fishing exhibits. Flax grinders, scrapers, brushes, spinning wheel, bezels - everything you need for nets. The museum is located in the 19thcentury ethnographic fisherman’s homestead in Mindūnai village, which consists of a high-altitude wooden shop and a barn.
