The Samogitian Art Museum (Žemaičiai Art Museum) operating in Mykolas Oginskis Palace since 1994 has collected and exhibited museum valuables reflecting the historical variety of the Samogitian region, and has preserved and cherished the traditions of Mykolas Oginskis Manor. Expositions invite the visitors to learn about the pieces of the 20th – 21st century professional fine arts which were granted to the museum by the Samogitian artists living in Lithuania and abroad.
The homestead of the museum is a former ensemble of the Duke Michael Nikolaus Severin Mark Oginski’s (1849–1902) manor the buildings of which were built in the period from 1873 to 1886. From 1879 to 1902, there was an orchestra school in the manor founded by M. Oginski.
Presently, the ensemble of the manor is composed of ten 19th century buildings and structures. They are surrounded by one of the biggest (58.3 ha) and most beautiful mixed style parks in Lithuania.
