Nowadays the Palace has been converted to a museum and houses a large collection of paintings and various exhibitions of applied art, also a collection of Latvian church art.) and near Siauliai for the visit of the hill of crosses (The hill-fort of Jurgaičiai near Šiauliai, known as the Hill of Crosses, is a favourite attraction for tourists and pilgrims.
