Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania (National Museum) Tours and Activities

Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania (National Museum)
Built in the 15th century and taking center stage at the heart of Vilnius’ Old Town, the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania is a masterpiece of baroque architecture and one of the city’s most important monuments. Reopened in 2018 after a 15-year reconstruction, it’s now home to the National Museum of Lithuania.

The Basics
Visitors to the palace can follow four self-guided-tour routes around the museum. The first route focuses on the history of the castle; the second route on the palace architecture through the ages, including a 3D virtual reality presentation; and the third route focuses on everyday life at the palace, including the royal collection of arms and armory. The fourth route visits a series of temporary national and international exhibitions.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Tickets are available for each tour route, or you can purchase a combination ticket for all four; children under 7 get in free.
  • Plan at least two hours to explore all four tour routes.
  • There is a café and gift shop at the museum.
  • The palace and exhibitions are wheelchair-accessible.

How to Get There
The Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania is located in the northeastern corner of Vilnius Old Town. It’s within easy walking distance of the central attractions—head in the direction of hilltop Gediminas Castle Tower.

When to Get There
The museum is open all year round, although opening hours vary throughout the year. From September to May, the museum is closed on Mondays. Travelers on a budget can visit all the exhibitions for free on the last Sunday of each month.

The old town of Vilnius: An audio tour from Cathedral Square to the Gate of Dawn

On this self guided audio tour, I’ll show you my hometown from a local perspective telling stories about it that I find fascinating along with some of my own, personal stories. We’ll start in the heart of the city, at Cathedral Square, then stroll through the cobbled streets of the old town and end at the Gate of Dawn. Throughout their history, Lithuania and the other Baltic states have followed a different path to the rest of Europe. It’s a path that’s not well-known to the wider world. But since Lithuania became independent in 1990, its capital Vilnius has opened up to the world, merging influences both local and international. You'll discover: • How we celebrate Vilnius’ Birthday • The independence of the Baltic states and why we consider it a miracle • Why Lithuanian hot chocolate is the best hot chocolate • Where to watch the stars and planets in Vilnius • The street with the best local craftsmen • Why a Vilnius hangman had up to seven wives
