highway’ and present-day major roads and highways such as

Pre- and post-war road construction equipment is exposed in the original
metal pavilion, along with exhibitions providing a large variety of samples
from many countries of building materials, as well as rocks, minerals and
crystals. A hunting and ecology section in the pavilion is small but
well-attended and appealing to visitors.
The Museum was opened to visitors on 19th October 1995. The founder and
manager of the museum is Juozas Steponavičius. He is a vetran road engineer
and very attentive and enthusiastic supervisor of the museum.
