Good overview of the past and city. The church inside is worth a visit especially in combination with the Kalozha Church Boris-Gleb Church

The architecture of the Castle is not very impressive. But the view from the hill - yes. Museum is worth to visit if one is interested in history of Grodno and Grand Duchy of Lithuania part of which was our days Belorussia.
