Recently opened, huge and beautiful. Much,much more interesting with a guide. Be prepared to spend at least two hours here and bring a warm jacket - exhibits are old and museum is quite chilly (~15 C) to preserve them.

Have not been inside, saw it only from the outside and the inner courtyard and it seemed amazing. Dukes' Palace has been completely overhauled recently and it really seems like a place worth seing. BUT! I have to warn everyone planning a weekend trip to Vilnius, go to the museum first thing in the morning. It was quarter past three in the afternoon when we came and wanted to have a look. Imagine our surprise when we read the opening hours were only until 4 p.m.. Way to early, especially when weekend's the time you get most tourists. Most of the museums close at 6 and people tend to count on it. Nevermind, we thought to make a quick tour of it in 40 minutes remaining. No such luck as already after three they put the sign "CLOSED" in front of the escalator going to the museum. It's really annoying and inconvenient.

Comprehensive history of Lithuania, which was very interesting, along with various artefacts, room reconstructions etc. Allow plenty of time to read everything. Certainly worth visiting.

This new museum houses walled remains from hundreds of years ago. They are all exposed by see through walls, ramps, and steps. Signage is in Lithuanian and English (I don't remember if in Russian), There were many cases of interesting, old artifacts (400 year old leather shoes, etc.) I spent about an hour browsing about the exhibits. Interesting.

If you have time, the palace is worth a (quick) visit. The collection is nothing special, but conveys an idea of local artists of the past.
