delfinariumas Lithuanian Sea Museum is located in the farthest northern point of the Curonian Spit – Kopgalis. Its shores are swashed by the Curonian Lagoon and the Baltic Sea from three sides. In the reconstructed central sconce (project author is the architect P. Lapė and the constructor T. Tubis) aquariums with Lithuanian freshwaters, Baltic and tropical seas fish decorated with sea fauna exposition are fitted. In outside pools by the aquarium building, penguins, Baltic seals and sea-lions of the North Sea reside. In the casemates under castle mounds, in the former gunpowder depots, there is the exposition of Lithuanian navigation history; delfinariumas3on the mounds, in the former gun squares, the ancient and modern anchors collection is exhibited. On the shore of the Curonian Lagoon, in the place of ancient village of Kopgalis fishermen, the ethnographic seaside fisherman’s homestead is built, and near it – the site for fishing ships, the pioneers of industrial fishing in Lithuania. In 1994, the dolphinarium was opened, which has completed the complex of Lithuanian Sea Museum covering all areas of human relationship with the sea. That complexity is exactly what makes our museum stand out from other sea museums in Europe.
