Kretinga Manor was built in the 15th – early 16th century. Count Juozas Tiškevičius bought it from Mikalojus Zubovas in 1875 and it became the family’s residence. He beautified the buildings further by adding a glassed conservatory with a faux cliff and cascading waterfall, the walls were decorated with corals. It was the most famous winter garden in Lithuania.
In 1992, the restored buildings became home to the Kretinga Museum which has archeological, numismatic, and old Lithuanian folk art and ethnographical expositions. There is a regular rotation of contemporary art also. Regional tourist information is also available. The buildings host various events, and may be rented for conferences and seminars. The winter garden has a cafe.
