The Zmuidzinavicius Museum, commonly known as the Devils' Museum, is one of the attractions in the city that draws in a great number of art lovers. The residence of artist Antanas Žmuidzinavičius was set up as a museum in the year 1966 but was constructed in 1929. Joining the ranks of the Kaunas Picture Gallery, the Zoological Museum, the Kaunas Ghetto and the Ninth Fort in popularity as attractions in the city, the museum also features an increasing number of other devil artifacts that were donated by visitors from across the globe. However, the illustration of Stalin and Hitler depicted as a couple of devils dancing over a mountain of skulls of the Lithuanian people is said to be among the special highlights of this museum.
Featuring the genuine ambiance of the twenties and the thirties, the flat and studio in the house of Žmuidzinavičius are among the main features of the museum. Of course, its permanent exhibition of the paintings of the artist as well as the collections that he had acquired while he was still alive are also great crowd drawers. The museum displays more than 3,000 depictions of the devil. Aside from the upholsteries, the furniture, the indoor plants, the lamps, the ancient communication gadgets and the folk-patterned cloths, the rooms of the house also contain numerous artworks that were given to the artist by well-known artists from across Europe.
