Mardi Gras museum

The only Užgavėnės (Shrove Tuesday) Museum in Europe, housed in the restored Plateliai Manor homestead stabling, invites to learn about the traditions of this winter festival as well as to see the impressive collection of over 250 Shrove Tuesday masks. The manor complex also houses the craft centre which, in addition to the creations of masks, offers an abundance of other activities – from candle making to pancake making!
