Fodor's Expert Review Klaipėda Castle Museum

Klaipėda Museum/Gallery

This museum is housed in the remnants of Memelburg Castle, from which the city got its original name. The castle was founded in the late 13th century. When Lithuania was absorbed into the Russian Empire at the end of the 18th century, the castle lost some of its importance but still retained its charm. The museum opened in 2002 and displays furnishings and other objects dating from the 16th to the 18th centuries, including the original diamond ring that has been copied as an annual award to Klaipėda residents who have given particularly useful service to the city.
