ŽALIŪKIAI VILLAGE MILLER’S FARMSTEAD-MUSEUM

Museums

Žaliukiai Miller’s Farmstead and the Mill (at the Šiauliai Aušros Museum) was built at the end of the 19th century. It is the only wooden structure of ethnographic architecture in Šiauliai that has survived to this day, and the mill has been restored. It is the first grain processing museum in Lithuania and one of the most distinct landmarks of Šiauliai City, and the place where Balts’ culture and traditional crafts are preserved. Throughout the year, a simple miller’s family life takes place at the ethnographic farm: grains are ground, bread is baked, but everyday life is diversified by celebration of various Lithuanian annual festivals. The museum demonstrates Lithuanian traditions in the worm of educational classes: bread baking, Christmas and Easter customs, making Užgavėnės masks.
