Vilnius’ newest museum is a must for modern art lovers and those interested in seeing works by modern and contemporary Lithuanian artists. Designed by renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, the MO Museum is a work of modern art in itself and has already won several architecture prizes.
Visitors can explore exhibitions of modern Lithuanian art that reflect a broad range of styles and ideas, as well as the main processes and developments in Lithuanian art over the last 60 years. The majority of the artists represented in the collection are still active today and are recognised both in Lithuania and abroad. The exhibitions change regularly to reflect different artists and themes. Visitors can also attend film screenings, educational activities, concerts, and events for all age groups.
Built in 2018, the MO Museum is a gift to the public from Danguole and Viktoras Butkai, avid collectors of modern Lithuanian art. It is one of the newest additions to the collection of museums in Vilnius and features over 5,000 works. Plus, the museum also houses a digitally restored fragment of a 1972 fresco created by Algirdas Steponavičius and Birutė Žilytė.
