Museum Closed on August 15, 2020 2020 08 10

On August 15, the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Church Heritage Museum, Crypts and Bell Tower of Vilnius Cathedral will be closed. On Friday, the eve of the feast, we will close one hour earlier – at 5 pm.

Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is one of the oldest churches in Vilnius; a convent of Friars Minor Conventual was established next to it in the 15th century. In our museum’s exhibition “The City of Heaven” visitors can see a magnificent late Baroque monstrance which belonged to this convent. A reference to the title of the church is incorporated in its decoration: a figure of the Blessed Virgin Mary lifted up by an angel.
