Absolutely experience for the lifetime. However, one minus that you need to read a lot. So be aware of that

Spent an hour on a private guided tour (€15, book in advance). Arunas, our guide, was very informative and knowledgeable. Provided a great insight into a harrowing period of history.

A truly emotional experience. Hard to comprehend some of the artefacts and stories on display here. A damming indictment of humanity really. All displays are tastefully and respectfully presented. W well worth the visit, allow about 90 mins. Four euros entry fee.

The KGB museum is very educational, and I learned a lot. It is also very harrowing, especially the KGB cells and execution chamber underneath. It is important that we learn and remember though, and I highly recommend visiting.

Was taken here by my partner- who is Lithuanian, so I could see the suffering they went through at the hands of the soviet regime. Truly a harrowing experience.

This place is a testimony to Soviet atrocities committed in Lithuania. It is a must see place, esp. for those younger people who don't know much about Soviet times. The most amazing part is the section that talks about Partisan's resistance to Soviet occupation. The...More

This place truly helps you appreciate what the country went through and how they persevered. It was very crowded, but definitely worth spending the time to read the documents and displays.
