Information about the museum

The Alka Samogitian Museum was founded and currently operates as a representative museum of the history of the Samogitia ethnographic region. In 1938, the museum house was opened to the visitors on the Green Hill, one of the seven hills in Telšiai.

The museum currently holds perhaps the richest collections of exhibits of archaeology, manor heritage, Samogitian diocese, and natural and ethnic cultural heritage in the region and has an extensive library. The collected heritage is presented in exhibitions and displays in the main museum building in Telšiai, in the Samogitian Diocese Museum in Varniai and in the Samogitian Village Exhibition
