St.Michael's church is famous for a mausoleum of the Sapiega family. The church gets a lot of light that's why it was decided to have a museum here. Treasury of Vilnius Cathedral is on display here. The audio guide is included in the ticket price (4.5 euro) and helps to understand the history of the discovered treasury and meaning of liturgical artefacts. English tours are held on Fridays at 4pm. Worth to visit.

It is a beautiful baroque church, it is a museum of church art – with several quite interesting objects and (which is less known) a place for some excellent pics in the churchyard. Mind – the best ones can be doe only in winter, when snow adorns decorative columns and red of St. Anns in the backround is especially bright. The ticket to the museum costs 4.50 EUR (regular adult), there are also more expensive combined tickets to two or three more objects (Crypts and bell tower of the Cathedral).

I had less than an hour, which was not long enough for all the beautiful religious objects in this lovely museum. The desk staff were very friendly. Most of the collection is on the ground floor, but they encouraged me to go upstairs even though it was nearly closing time. They just wanted to make sure I saw everything. Got one of those recorded guided tours with headphones, which was interesting because it tells you more of the history of the objects you are admiring. I highly recommend this museum if you have any interest in religious art.

This church is stunning. It looks the most Russian to me with the onion domes. Definitely stop in to take a look and step out so you can take some pictures outside as well.

St.Michael's church is located in Vilnius old town neat St. Anna's church. It was build as a catholic church and as a mousoleum of one of the richest Lithuanian families - Sapiega. Unfortunately, during the Soviet times, the church was distroyed and a lot of things was stolen. Anyway, now the church is reconstructed and opened as church heritage museum. There are Cathedral's and other main churches in Lithuania treasury, as well very impressive gravestones for Sapiega family. There are audioguides (ask at cashier) and TABs in the hall with all information, pictures, movies etc. Price for adults in April 2015 - 4,5 euro.

There are lot of churches in Vilnius and some of them are very nice and elegant but this church stands out on its own. It has gothic as well as baroque architecture. It is very nicely decorated inside and outside. A must see if you are in Vilnius.

I truly like visiting cathedrals and St Michael's was no disappointment. The design, colors, spirituality were plentiful. The construction is just amazing.

The Church of St Michael was built by the Chancellor of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania Leonas Sapiega between 1594 and 1597 for a convent of Bernardine nuns, and also to serve as a family mausoleum.

Just wanted to mention that the previous comment is not correct - in Vilnius there is a very nice and colourful Greek Orthodox church, but St. Michael's church is not the one. It is one of only two churches in Vilnius, representing renaissance style (as well as Gothic and Barocco).

Vilnius is usually called a baroque city, but this church is one of rare object remained from Renaissance period. And now it has opened a church heritage museum, full of nice peaces of church art.

This is now a museum of church art. They have free entrance last Friday of the month. One of very few places that offer an audioguide for rent. Perfect if you are into church art and goldsmithery.
