Lithuanian national museum

The national museum of Lithuania at Vilnius was founded in 1855 and preserves a large collection of historical items and documents. If you want to see all parts of the collection you’ll have to visit different buildings – the main location is the new arsenal in the former lower castle not far away from the cathedral square. The presentation of items in the museum is a bit old-school but it’s worth a visit if you’re interested in history.

Not all elements that have been collected over time can still be seen: after the January uprising of 1863 and during World War I important parts of the collection were brought to Москва́, Russia.
