Belarus - Nesvizh Castle Museum

This is my eighth blog post about my Belarus trip - the Nesvizh Castle Museum. The others have been about travel, activities, money, statues and monuments, buildings and architecture, Mir Castle, and Nesvizh Castle.

We enjoyed walking through the Nesvizh Castle Museum.  Pictures capture only part of the beauty we saw there.

This room had family pictures like this all around the room

These dishes were beautiful.

We were told that the next section of the museum would be opening to the public later this year and that the next portion would be even more beautiful.

How about you?  Can you trace your family history back to the 16th century?
