What travelers are saying
- I am grateful that I got to visit so that Lithuanians could remember the holocaust as it happened right there. It tells a story that is not included in US history books.Written August 5, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We climbed up to the top of the tower, one of the bells chimed while we were up there, it was quite loud! Well worth a visit and a climb.Written October 18, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The bastion itself looks as if it’s ‘sunk’ in what might have once been a moat. The upper edge of the ‘moat’ has a nice trail, with benches. One can sit and relax and enjoy looking at the bastion and defensive wall. Good place to catch a sunset.
As an aside, the official name of this attraction is Bastion of the Defensive Wall, which is far better known than TA’s Artillery Bastion.Written November 13, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Very interesting, small museum with the big heart. It has got a special atmosphere of the places of "old kind". It's not interactive nor sophisticated. That's why it's "got the look".Written July 14, 2021

Now it is a museum with a 4 euros entrance fee.Written October 15, 2019
- I had fun looking for and finding this stone. Truly was more impressed with this pagan stone than several other boring statues found ! Would be interested in the means it is maintained with a lit candle ! Hey even the pagans need a place to visit .Written May 22, 2019

- 08 July, 2017.
I had arrived in Vilnius on 05 July, 2017, and spent the previous
three days walking all around the Old Town, admiring the old
churches and cathedrals all around. I was rather intrigued to see
two tall spires rising into the skies from a distance, yet no
tourist map of the Old Town or the city really helped me in this
regard, to identify the place, and its history. On 08 July, I was
determined to find out more, and after a couple of approaches
(including one over the grassy mound, leading to a fenced-off area),
I Was finally able to get to the place I had seen across all my
roaming across the Old Town. This is an old church which is
currently closed, but even from the outside, this is a real treat
for lovers of archaeology, and old structures. The light yellow structure
had entrance doors on three sides of an impressive entrance, and
looks striking from the footpath/sidewalk, which has a small
grassy patch near the entrance.Written September 3, 2017
