The Homestead-Museum of the Pilot Steponas Darius

The pilot Steponas Darius and his colleague Stasys Girėnas are best known for their flight over the Atlantic Ocean, which, unfortunately, resulted in their death in 1933. However, another lesser-known fact is that Steponas Darius took part in Klaipėda Revolt in January 1923. He was a deputy commander of the 3rd group. On 9 January, after taking over Šilutė, Darius became a unit commander and, on 15 January 1923, a group of 75 rebels under his lead, arrived in Klaipėda, already taken over by the rebellion.
