The idea of ethnocosmology was born on the Kaldiniai Hills. Its founding fathers were Dr Gunaras Kakaras, Head of Staff at the astronomical observatory, and Dr Libertas Klimka, Senior Research Associate at the Semiconductor Physics Institute and an avid enthusiast of ethnoculture. Kakaras’s fascination with the celestial sphere, and Klimka’s with ethnology found something in common – the Lithuanian nation’s connection with the sky, Sun, Moon, and stars. Such were the origins of ethnocosmology – both of the term and the future museum. But it took some time before the term ‘ethnocosmology’ was actually used.
