Žemaitija Art Museum


The 19th-century Oginski Palace, in the nearby city of Plungė, holds an interesting collection of modern Samogitian art (carvings and metal works). The landscaped grounds surrounding the palace, criss-crossed with terraced ponds, are a sight in themselves. Shorter hours in winter.
