Working since the opening of museum in 1978, the exposition of agricultural implements is the oldest. The name of the museum itself says that priority of ours is horse-drawn implements. Lithuanians used horses in various works: ploughing, cleaning of harvest, thrashing…
About 9-10 century Lithuanians started to use horses for farming. Soon agile, fast, more productive horse replaced bulls who were the only traction in husbandry for ages.
While exploring agricultural implements exposition you will understand why Lithuanian call horses ‘the ones that earn the bread’, see what implements used our grandfathers and have a rare opportunity to take a look at potato digger made in Germany. Moreover, you may be surprised by diversity of exhibited plows.
