JONIŠKIS BASKETBALL MUSEUM

There is a saying that says „the basketball is like a second religion in Lithuania“, however for a prolonged period of time there was no place for fans, athletes and anyone interested in this sport to see the most famous achievements, attributes and historical photos of the country's basketball players. Therefore, in 2009, the only basketball museum in Lithuania was opened in Joniškis.

Museum has a special room to celebrate the victory of the Lithuanian basketball team in 1937 at the II European Basketball Championship in Riga (Latvia). Back then Joniškis was the first city where the returning Lithuanian basketball team was greeted by the local goverment and fans with flowers and brass band marshals.
