"The Rebels of 1863-1864". Exhibition of the Museum of Polish History in the Grand Courtyard of the Palace of the Grand Dukes

The interactive exhibition "The Rebels of 1863-1864" presents the origins, beginning, and course of the uprising in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, and parts of Ukraine by revealing the personal stories of the participants.
The exhibition, in Lithuanian, Polish and English, is divided into two parts. The first part - the 16 exhibition stands - presents the origins of the 1863-1864 uprising, the protests, the armed struggles, the involvement of prominent figures and social groups, the patriotic actions of women and even the fashion of the rebels. The exhibition's second part is an interactive pavilion where animated reconstructions vividly recreate critical episodes of the uprising. Here, sights and sounds create an immersive narrative, transporting visitors back to the tumultuous atmosphere of the period.
The exhibition, dedicated to the 160th anniversary of the 1863-1864 Uprising, will run until 18 May 2024.
On 25-26 April, an interactive educational zone for children and young people will be set up, inviting them to engage with history, create historical collages or participate in quizzes.
