Open expositions

The Museum offers not only expositions inside and four themed routes that visitors can take, but also has open expositions outside – the Small and Grand courtyards, the Renaissance Garden, bas-reliefs dedicated to Bona Sforza and Tito Livio Burattini, and a monument created to memorialise the letters of Gediminas from 1323. These expositions give visitors further information about the history of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, and the people who lived and worked here. 

Renaissance Garden

The Renaissance Garden of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania reflects the stylistics characteristic of a Renaissance-era representational residence’s surroundings and landscape planning, including the herbs and decorative plants that would have been grown in the 16th century.

Small Courtyard of the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania

On the western foot of Castle Hill, atop a sandy cape, construction began of the enclosed type pre-Gothic Early Brick Castle in the 1270s–1280s. This castle, built by the ancestors of the Gediminid dynasty, abutted a ravine leading down from Castle Hill at its northern aspect. In the mid-14th century, the natural ravine was reinforced with logs and transformed into a defensive trench for the castle. By the second half of the 14th century, as the Vilnius Lower Castle was enlarged, the ravine was filled and wooden buildings started being built in its place.
