Exposition
The museum was founded in 1973 on the initiative of the photographer Antanas Dilys.
In 1990, the third exposition was arranged in the museum. The exposition presents the history of Lithuanian photography and the photographical art works from the invention of photography and its first appearance in Lithuania until the present times. In it the works of eminent Lithuanian photographers, both of the past and of the present, are displayed. In individual museum cases, the creations of the most famous Lithuanian photographers – A. Jurašaitis, J. Cechavičius, K. Baulus, J. Bulhakas, B. Buračas, P. Karpavičius – are stored. The photo-technology models, which were used by Lithuanian photographers of all generations, are included in the complete exposition.
In the museum of photography, about 20 exhibitions of the history of photography and modern photography are organized during a year.
