Lonely Planet review

Located in the old arsenal at the foot of Gediminas Hill, this museum has temporary exhibitions alongside a permanent collection showcasing 15th- to 19th-century Lithuanian sacred art. Much of it was only discovered in Vilnius Cathedral in 1985 after being hidden in the walls by Russian soldiers in 1655. Because of fear that they’d be seized by the Soviets, the works, valued at €11 million, remained a secret until 1998, when they were finally displayed to the world.
