The consistent historical narrative of the Tauragė region begins with prehistory and continues to the present day. Archaeological finds, the remains of the Tauragė manor, the features of the border with Prussia, the world wars, the devastated land, and the flourishing of a modern industrial city. Yiddish, German, Russian and Lithuanian-speaking Tauragians who lived here are presented. The Industrial Revolution struck Tauragė during the Soviet era, so the exhibition contains many examples of products from that time. Puzzles, games, a quiz, a slide table and columns of interesting facts will allow you to touch on the story.
