"The most important thing is that this center and museum will continue investing in Lithuanian art. It’s a sort of incentive for Lithuanian artists and creators," Grybauskaitė said during her visit to the museum where she examined the first exhibition with the museum's creators, initiators and the architect.

Grybauskaitė underlined that the MO Museum would be "one of the places we can be proud of and show to foreigners".
