Ninth forth is of course really good example of defense fortification of it’s time, but it’s also impressive monument of WW2 and all of it’s horror. You feel the history, you feel the sorrow. Read all the signs, that way you understand what has happened there, and also remember walk around whole fortification and look all the details of early... More

Moving monument and museum. Gives great insight into what our relatives must have gone through. They have done a wonderful job of collecting artifacts and recreating events. The monument is very special, the closer you get

With a very reasonably priced fee, the museum here was well worth it. We had an English audio guide, which was very informative and all the exhibitions were well presented. The fort itself was also well presented and easy to navigate. Of course all the information though is quite confronting and disturbing, so be prepared to come out feeling a... More

This fort has had multiple purposes over the years, it now provides good detailed information about the last century and particularly the Russian and German occupations. Very thought provoking, all the exhibits are well labeled in multiple languages. Free audio guide in English is available. Entrance fee very reasonable at 2.30 Euro. Venue very popular with school groups.

Definetely not to be missed. Both for the ones interested in history and for the ones who are not so much, cos this history just cannot be ignored. Useful above all for tourist from western Europe, in order to know histories that have reached our knowledge less often then they should have done.

When I visited Lithuania, I had little knowledge of the country other than it was a former Soviet state; one visit to Ninth Fort changed that. The fort is now a museum of Lithuanian history, encompassing World War 2 and the subsequent Soviet era. However, before that it was a prison, an army base and a death camp for thousands... More

The statue by artist A. Ambraziunas stands about 105 feet high and 300 feet wide and was unveiled in 1984. The Ninth Fort had previously been used as a prison before... More

During our visit to Lithuania it was recommended that we pay a visit to Ninth Fort. We chose to arrive by taxi as we weren't sure of bus routes. It was a cold and overcast day but seemed to fit the feel of the site. The sculpture itself is amazing. You can spend quite some time looking at it and... More
