Archaeological Site Museum of Kernavė

The museum acquaints visitors with the Kernavė Archaeological Site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the first capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania was established in the 13th century. The museum’s halls contain a detailed presentation of the site’s history, from its inception, which dates back to prehistoric times, to the thriving craft period during the 13th–14th century. At the modern exhibition, you can see authentic exhibits, and also learn about the production of the tools on display and how to use them – the work of experimental archaeology specialists is presented to visitors in video material.
