Very interesting exhibition with many artefacts. Actual cells in the basement where the prisoners were kept are well-preserved and very impressive.

Not for the faint hearted but a necessary reminder of our not too distant past. Masses of information about the resistance movement and the removal of people to exile in the distant hinterlands. Its heart wrenching. Then you descend into the bowels of the place. It's like hell on earth. The smell of death and misery is palpable. When you... More

This museum is located in the main avenue of Vilnius, Gediminas, in a beautiful building. The main entrance is not in the avenue but in a side street. The museum is creepy, quite interesting to see how the world was some time ago (not so long). The stories of people are always touching, the cells oppressive, but the room where... More

If you have been to e.g. the 'House of Terror' in Budapest, you might be disapointed. But it doesn't mean that you shouldn't. see... More

It is worth to see this place. Just because we should know our history or history of the places we visit. And this is not ancient history. It tells us more about very recent times that our parents or grandparents still remember.

Worth a visit but be prepared to be touched by the awful things this country and nation have had to endure over the years. A must for any free person to see the other side of life ruled by dictators.
