Ghostly but fascinating. You do need at least 1.5 hours to read all the exhibits and the lower basement floor is not the easiest experience.

The overall experience was moving and emotional to see mans inhumanity to man in such stark conditions.It is no longer called the KGB Museum but a long name associated with Genocide. The pain and torture inflicted on the Lithuanian people was horrific. I do however feel the chapter of genocide against the Jews was not covered proportionally and needs to be corrected. 240,000 people died in Lithuania in this period. 200,000 of them Jews. The presentations focus mostly on the Russian atrocities and spare a smaller proportion of the galleries to the Jewish massacres. I would have given Very Good but the lack of balance leads me to conclude "average".

This museum offers the devastating history of Lithuania’s occupations and fights for freedom - a tale of torture, death and oppression of brave, courageous people. Prepare to stomach pretty grim pictures and horrible information! To get the full experience book a guided tour like we did and enjoy the guides (Arūnas) deep knowledge of the history and the museum. He answered our many questions thoughtfully and well balanced.

The best way to get the correct information directly from the prison itself. It all ended Yesterday, in 1991.
