Very fine displays of interesting weapons through the ages. Great collection of military firearms from the 20th century. Fine armours. Well made models of fortifications, etc. We were lucky to have a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide.

This dates from when Kaunas was the capital of Lithuania and so it's on a national museum scale. Everything is in Lithuanian but they'll lend you an ipad so you can follow it round in English. There is the great hall and then the more...More
