There was a small fee, maybe €1, to enter. Total of 3 small rooms with lots of pictures of Karaite people. They are a very small ethnic minority originally from Turkey who were brought to Lithuania in the 1400s to serve as bodyguards. Their number have greatly dwindled and now there are less than 60 of them left in Trakai and fewer than 280 in all Lithuania. In the largest room are some quite odd things - like Samurai armor and a shield made from hippopotamus hide. Forgot you ask what they were doing in the Museum.
