This history museum traces the early origins of ‘Lithuania Minor’, or Kleinlitauen, as much of the Lithuanian coastal region was referred to over the centuries as part of Eastern Prussia. With the exception of greater Klaipėda, which was annexed by Lithuania after WWI, parts of the coast, as well as Kaliningrad (Russia), remained part of Germany until WWII.

The museum includes fascinating bits and pieces of the German legacy, such as Prussian maps, labour-intensive weaving machines and traditional folk art.
