The artillery bastion is located in the heart of Old Town Vilnius. The entrance fee for students is 2 EUR.

The ground floor level with various historical information, the upper level with the panoramic view across Vilnius as well as the basement level deep inside the bastion can be explored.

There are numerous antiques and artefacts on display throughout the exhibition.

If you've got some time to kill, swing by!

City walls

In this museum you'll find more about the city walls and the history behind them. Also you will have a nice view of the city when you go outside. In the basement of the bastion there usually are some interesting exhibitions.

Enjoyable visit to the Bastion
Oct 2019
The Bastion of the Defensive wall is a military fortification.The attraction consists of the museum and a viewing platform.I enjoyed this tourist attraction.The bastion sits on top of a hill and offers you a fine vista of the surrounding area.Great opportunity for picture taking of the view and the medieval type backdrop of the Bastion.It feels like you are in a mini castle.
The museum itself is located in the underground area of the attraction.Down in this area you will find canons,battle boards,videos and to be honest an overly long section based on footwear in this era.

Part of the Vilnius Defensive Wall
Oct 2019
The Bastion is a Renaissance-style fortification. It consists of a tower installed in the city defense wall, underground gun ports, and a connecting tunnel.

The Bastion was built in the first half of the 17th century.

There is a picturesque view of the Old Town.

Visit if passing with a Vilnius pass
Sep 2019 • Friends
Pop in if you are walking past and can get in free with a Vilnius pass but personally I wouldn’t make a special effort to visit. Views of the city from the top of the bastion weren’t as good as being outside the bastion even though you are at a higher level. Not much to see inside.

I discovered the Artillery Bastion when exploring the old town. It was part of the city wall at one time and was constructed at the beginning of the 17th century.

Walls Around Gedeminas Hill
Jun 2019 • Couples
This area was fenced off under renovation but you can walk the perimeter and see the old brick walls below the castle and the tower of Gediminas Hill.This is where Vilnius started in the 13th century and although most of Vilnius has been well restored this was work in progress and not that goo. Take advantage of the views on top of the hill.

Oct 2018 • Solo
A great place to take a walk in the warm and sunny weather and you can visit the museum here. From the top of the building there is a wonderful view of the city.
