On 11 September, the Visitor Centre of the Seimas, located at 60 Gediminas Avenue, launched its activities for the public.

Working hours: I-IV: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., V: 8  a.m. - 3.45 p.m. Contacts: tel: + 370 5 239 6600, e-mail: [email protected].

 

When the Visitor Centre opened its doors, the guided tours organised in the Seimas will be complemented by various educational activities, lectures and discussions, which will provide the public with a deeper insight into the history of parliamentary development, activities of modern parliaments, and legislative procedures. The Centre will also host meetings with members of the Seimas. It is noteworthy that each resident or guest of Vilnius will have access to the Visitor Centre during its opening hours without prior registration.

The main objective of the Centre is to promote an open dialogue between the Seimas and the public, ensure the accessibility of the Seimas, and encourage the responsible behaviour of voters. The Visitor Centre will become an excellent educational space for families, children, individual visitors, communities and pupils.

The educational activities and guided tours organised by the Visitor Centre will contribute to lessons of civic education in the secondary school curriculum. Teachers have already been adding variety to their lessons by bringing their pupils to the Seimas. However, the teachers have repeatedly expressed their interest in being offered other forms of civic education by the Office of the Seimas.

The staff team of the Visitor Centre is taking its first steps by opening the doors to society and looking forward to, first of all, dialogue with the public, teachers and educators, who will be able not only to express their impressions and expectations with regard to the functional content of the Visitor Centre, but also to actively participate in the development of its space and activities.

At the initial phase of its operation, the Visitor Centre will examine visitors’ needs, develop educational activities, hold discussions, and organise meetings with members of the Seimas.
