Roof Terrace Opening
2022-10-08, 17:00 - 18:30
Energy and Technology Museum, located in the premises of the historical power plant, opens the museum’s roof terrace for visitors. It presents a new exhibit – an interactive Gediminas Hill stand, where visitors can record a voice greeting to Vilnius on the occasion of the 700th anniversary – and a thematic guided tour “History of Vilnius Modernization”.
On Saturday, October 8th, at 5 PM Vilnius residents and guests are invited to take part in the opening events:
Presentation of the Gediminas Hill stand with museum director Mykolas Bistrickas and project author Andžej Kuldoš;
Guided tour “History of Vilnius Modernization” with guide Karolina Koroliova-Barkova. Hot tea will be served on the terrace.
Looking at Gediminas Hill from the stand, you can see what the Upper Castle once stood there looked like. The audio guide tells the history of the Lower and Upper castles from the first knowledge about them to the present day. In January, commemorating the 700th anniversary of Vilnius, a general greeting will be created from the voice recordings collected at the stand.
During rhe guided tour, we take a look at Old Town, New Town, Šnipiškės and Žirmūnai districts, which open from here, the history of the city’s creation, the most significant inventions that changed the lives of Vilnius residents, and the history of the appearance and construction of technically advanced city objects – the Vilnius Concert and Sports Palace, Vilnius TV Tower, three Neris bridges and others.
After purchasing a museum visitor’s ticket, the guided tour is free. Registration to the opening events is here.
The creation of the stand was supported by the Lithuanian Council of Culture and Vilnius City Municipality.
The roof terrace of the museum was built with the funds of the European Union Regional Development Fund and Vilnius City Municipality.
