What do you mean with "installed packages"?

They are unpacked and files are distributed all over the system, usually 
in the directories "/bin", "/usr/bin", "/etc", "/usr/lib" etc.

You can find it out for individual packages with the command "dpkg -L 
packagename" in a terminal. E.g. for the package libc6 it would be this:

dpkg -L libc6

OTOH, maybe you want to know where the downloaded packages are after the 
installation. Have a look at "/var/cache/apt".
