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 monument at the Ninth Fort (Devintojo Forto Statula) is a Soviet-era memorial to the estimated 30,000 Jews and 20,000 other persons who were murdered here during the Holocaust. 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

I used live next to this place and visited so many times. Very worth to go inside the museum and tunnels with guide. Outside monuments are on a list of the most strange buildings created by Russians sculptors.

We took a taxi from our hotel in the city centre to get here, as the bus journey looked slightly complicated. Upon arrival, I asked not once - but twice - for an English tour guide and paid for our tickets. We entered the first museum, which was interesting and took us less than an hour to see what we...

We had a wonderful time here on a snowy, low visability sunday. The architecture is great, especially with a ton of snow on it. Wrap up warm though, after 2 hours it's a bit bone chilling! We hired the English speaking tour guide [I'm not sure of his name but he was tall with sandy blonde hair] and he was... More
