7. The Museum of Dr Vincas Kudirka.
Hmm... I managed to visit only number 3. Next time...




There was the exposition "Lithuanian State and Culture History" inside this white building called the New Arsenal. I can't say you anything about the exposition except that it contained historical and etnographical expositions. I didn't visit it as it was closed that day :-(((. But I think it may be interesting for folks who are interested in old Lithuanian art and history of this part of our globe.

Well, long building of New Arsenal looked very impressive. It was renovated in 1958 - 1965 and again recently before huge events on 750 anniversary of King Mindaugas coronation in 2003. It was finally built in Classsical style probably at the end of 18th century. In 19th century where Vilnius was occupied by Russia the building housed military barracks.
