  • The museum is now on the redevelopment of the facade (November 2019), but it is available to visit. From December it will be closed for reconstruction and its premises. The museum is a large museum of local history with halls of archaeology, paleontology, history of The War, biology, insects. A lot of everything, but each of us, most likely, went to such museums in his city. Hearing the name "Old Castle" you expect to see knights, stone halls, taverns, maid sofher, anything, but not painted with standard Soviet-painted walls. Were disappointed. I hope that after the reconstruction the Old Castle will live its noble life, as it should be historically. A separate exhibition for a symbolic fee of 1 ruble is offered to visit the ruins of an ancient church located in the courtyard. There is very little left of the church, but it is interesting to see the stonework, some decorations of the facade have been preserved. I don't know if they will be available during the renovation, but it was interesting to see

  • Big castle of red bricks has dozens of rooms with exhibitions related to history of Lithuania and Poland and local area during Moscow rule. Some items are from actual noblemen. Also great view at the lake.
