Monuments & Sites, Museums & Art Centres
The Old Arsenal is one of the 11 branches of the National Museum of Lithuania, and is one of its 5 branches which introduce the visitors to the stages of pre-modern Lithuania’s history. The Old Arsenal displays items, dating from around 11,000 years BC to the birth of the nation itself, in the 13th century AD.

The museum also gives a good idea about people's everyday life some 13,000 years ago, including the country's culture and traditions.

The Vilnius Castle Complex had two arsenals, the New and the Old. The Old Arsenal was established in the 15th century, during the rule of Vytautas the Great, and expanded several times afterwards. At the beginning of the 17th century, the Old Arsenal housed about 180 heavy cannons.
