In an old park on the outskirts of Rokiškis town you can see a palace. It is the former Rokiškis manor, which was governed by several generations of Tyzenhausai (Tyzenhauz) and Pšezdziecki families from the end of the 18th century, famous for its cultural and academic activities, collections of paintings and musical instruments, and arts patronage.

It presents unique cultural and historical exhibits of Rokiškis region: there are many archaeological findings, old books, documents and printings, numismatics, pieces of pictorial and applied arts of manor culture, as well as photographs.
