The Lithuanian Museum of Ancient Beekeeping, established in 1984 near Stripeikiai in northeastern Lithuania, displays the history of beekeeping in the area.
The museum, part of Aukštaitija National Park, was founded by the beekeeper Bronius Kazlas.
As of 2006, the museum consisted of six buildings, about 500 displays, and 25 sculptures. In addition to illustrating the history of beekeeping in Lithuania, some of the museum's wooden sculptures themselves contain beehives. The sculptures pay homage to the honeybee's place in worldwide mythology and folklore, including Egyptian and Native American figures as well as the Lithuanian god Babilas and goddess Austėja. They were carved by Teofilis Patiejūnas and Ipolitas Užkurnis.
