It's great! Amazing castle museum. Highly recommend. Very interesting with lots of information. Well worth the price.
Nicely laid out modern museum, giving a good overview of the history of the palace and Lithuania. Best to go just for tours I and II, the others are small and niche. Very text heavy so you might tire quickly.
