Trip Planner: Europe / Lithuania / Vilnius County / Vilnius / Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania
See what once was the political, cultural, and administrative center of the Lithuanian empire at Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania. It housed the royalty of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, including Grand Duke Alexander of Lithuania, who later became the King of Poland, and Sigismund I the Old and his heirs. The palace was almost completely destroyed in 1801 after the fall of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, but was fully restored and modernized by the government in 2002. Explore the National Museum located inside, displaying historical artifacts and art from across Eastern Europe. Tours will lead you through the architectural development of the palace, the remaining ancient ruins, the Treasury Hall, and the Ceremonial Halls.

It will take you many hours to complete the tours of this museum. It takes you on a historical walk through Lithuania‘a past in great detail. Everything is in English and the full tour is €6 or €3... more »
Nicely laid out modern museum, giving a good overview of the history of the palace and Lithuania. Best to go just for tours I and II, the others are small and niche. Very text heavy so you might tire quickly.
It's great! Amazing castle museum. Highly recommend. Very interesting with lots of information. Well worth the price.
