“Excellent Holocaust Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

As I had read, this museum was a bit hard to find, but worth the effort. You cannot see it from the main street. The small street that it is on looks more like an alley. If you go up that little street it is on the right side and is set back a bit. Just before the street there is a brown Holocaust sign that points to the street.

My husband and I both thought that this museum was excellent. Most people know about the Holocaust in the Baltics, Ukraine, and surrounding countries, but they don't really know how it was done. It gives a big insight into the Einsatzgruppen.

“A Moving Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The museum commemorates the victimisation and extermination of Jews in Lithuania and contain many photographs, letters, documents, edicts and proclamations relating to this. Not so easy to find on some maps.

“Not To Be Missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This is a wonderful museum which will educate and shock you. There is countless material pertaining to a very dark time of Lithuania's history. Clearly, much thought and effort have gone into assembling this collection. For any one interested in history, this museum is a MUST.

“Simple, powerful, moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We took the number 7 trolley bus to the greenhouse and spent a couple of hours here learning about the nazi atrocities in Lithuania. The exhibition is straightforwardly and factually presented with photographs, documents and commentary in Lithuanian and English. The staff will also answer questions. There is a very powerful film comprising testimonies of Lithuanian people who lived through the ghetto period and even escaped from the execution pits ( has English subtitles). Most did not. Baltic people have suffered years of occupation, oppression and worse over the centuries. This museum shows the particular horrors of the nazi period in a striking and powerful way.
