Lithuania was a mecca for Jewish study before the war. All were killed or sent away. The displays are primitive but hugely informative. Lots of reading.

This is a very moving and informative museum with exhibits and information in English as well as a short film as well. It was a bit tricky to find the entrance but worth the effort. Highly recommend this.

Most of the exhibits are on poster boards, but there are a few actual artifacts on display and a secret hiding place. It tells the story of the holocaust in Lithuania.

It’s the kind of museum which almost only concists of text and photos or people. I’d say it’s not worth going if you already know the history.

This is a small museum from the outside, but so much information inside. It is not the type of place that you rush through, be prepared to spend time. Handy to know that you can pay €3, or you can pay €5 and your entry...More

The actualization of Holocaust varied very much between 1941 and 1945 and it also varied between different countries. Lithuania was one of the places where Holocaust started in and so is an interesting case study about the subject. Holocaust started by shooting people in the...More

I think it was open every day. Entry is very reasonable and for not much more, you can add entry to a Gallery.

I seem to think it was €5 or less per person. There are lots of boards with pages & pages of writing on the wall. You could spend 3 or 4 hours there if you wanted to read absolutely everything- but that's tricky as at most... More
