The palace was interesting and full of historical facts but the stand out was the Oculus Rift VR tour on the top floor costs €1 that shows you the history of the Tower. Very immersive.

The exhibits are well thought out and presented, and do much to acquaint foreign visitors with the history of Lithuania.

This was our first stop, so we spent a lot of time here learning about the imperial history of the Grand Duchy of Litnuania. Granted this took a lot of reading, and we were a bit tired by the time we reached the private chambers...More
