The building is a fragment of the Radziwill palace. One room and part of another is devoted to this family who were once so dominant in central Europe. The room with the 164 "portraits" is interesting but they are charactatures and bear no resemblance to the real people. The biographical detail though is gold to historians. A lot of information in Lithuanian and some in English. I am not complaining, it is their country but I felt that this part of the visit could have been more rewarding. The museum has visiting exhibitions which are really good, this spring it was on classical landscape etchings and engravings. Really excellent so worth visiting as you may be very pleasantly surprised. The remaining art collection is a mixed bag with religious art and classical art, not my taste. Some good sculptures though in corners. Overall worth a visit.
This is a must see. It is a walk through the history of a country little known to the world.
