ABOUT MUSEUM

In 1968 the memorial museum was opened in the village of Griezioneliai, where the bibliographer, the folklore collector Stanislovas Didziulis (1856–1927) and his wife, the first Lithuanian woman novelist Liudvika Didziuliene-Zmona (1856–1927) lived. You can see the photographs of the family and their relatives, the copies of the manuscripts, letters, books, forbidden press (“Ausra”, “Varpas”), which was spread by this family, some household and personal things (dishes, needlework, Didziuliene’s dress). Another room contains the furniture, a piano, a chest, a bed, a table, a mirror and some paintings.

During the press prohibition there was a press circulation center there. Behind the wardrobe in the passage a hiding place is left. Stanislovas and Liudvika Didziuliai are buried not far from the farmstead on the hill of Padvarninkai.
