The grounds of old fishing vessels

Wind! Wind! Wind!

A true sailor knows that it is not allowed to talk about the wind or whistle aboard a ship. Whistling would summon a strong wind and disasters. Aboard sailboats, wind was kept in sacks fastened with three knots. On undoing the first knot, there came out a mild wind, while the undoing of all three knots let out a storm.  


Ships, the largest exhibits of the Lithuanian Sea Museum, are displayed on the grounds of old fishing vessels. Exposition The long voyage is arranged in the medium trawler Dubingiai.

Dubingiai weighs as much as 330 tons! This marine giant was built in Klaipėda shipyard "Baltija" in 1961 and soon after became famous for its outstanding catches. In 1972, the trawler established the record - as much as 30 tons of fish were caught during a voyage. Dubingiai was transferred to the grounds of old fishing vessels in 1986.


The grounds also accommodate the steel trawler PTB-7176 and the small trawler Kolyma (a Type 90 small trawler). The largest exhibits remind us what vessels were used for fishing at sea and in the lagoon.


The Museum is proud of its kurėnas, a flat-bottom fishing sailboat of the Curonian Lagoon, which takes part in scientific expeditions in the Curonian Lagoon and represents the Museum and Lithuania in expeditions abroad.
