    I have mixed emotions after my visit. On one hand, the exhibits are well-designed and detailed in their explanations. The museum provides thorough and thought-provoking insight into the horrific experience of the Lithuanian population under the Soviet regime. However it also celebrates Lithuanian partizans who opposed the Soviets, without acknowledging their role in the extermination of the country’s Jewish population under Nazi occupation. The active participation of Lithuanians in the murder of their Jewish countrymen is an uncomfortable fact that shouldn’t be ignored any longer, particularly by important institutions such as this one.

    Nice little museum on the lower levels. The walk uphill is easily done by kids of all ages. The view is spectacular. Well worth the visit.

    Very interesting museum. Free to enter and lots of exhibits. Not just about Lithuanian money but lots of European and USSR history too.

    Vilnius has quite a bit of Jewish symbols and the local government has tried to commemorate the history of the Jewish community, that comprised almost 40 oercent of the population. However, like in Latvia, they are trying to minimize their own people participation and collaboration with the Nazi regime in exterminating the Jews and taking over their property in the most violent manner. This museum will show you - although partially - what happened. Therefore, it is an important place to visit.

    The museum is rather small but this is actually a good thing. The quality of the art is really really excellent and although it’s modern art, it doesn’t forget to take the Lithuanian history into account.

    There are huge chunks of amber, larger than a brick. Creative persons have fashioned ships, airplanes, and all manner of things from this material. While it is a shop, as well, no one pressured me to purchased anything.

    Excellent museum for all the family. Really helpful staff and really interesting toys. Explanations in English as well as Lithuanian. The only thing I didn't like was my kids beating me at bar football AND bar hockey!!!

    Exceptional sense of welcome, beautiful paintings and drawings, plus sublime hanging and lighting for the Bak exhibition. Besides, a lot of informations and illustrations, very educational and accessible in the same time.
    Don't forget to visit the section dedicated to the rescued Lithuanian children and their rescuers, a lifetime and unforgettable experience.

    It was an overcast morning on my second day in Vilnius,
    Lithuania, when I set out to explore the Old Town. I walked from
    my accommodation (B&B&B&B&B) towards the Old Town past the
    Railway Station, when my eyes fell on a board,
    `Lauko Ekspozicija: Gelezinkeliu Muziejus', with the picture of a
    steam engine. This is on a raised embankment, which is actually a
    continuation of the railway over-bridge on the junction of the Gelzinkelio g.
    and the Ausros Vartu g., the railway lines which go towards the
    railway station. The place was closed unfortunately, at the early
    hour in which I had visited it. It was also a national holiday, 06 July,
    on account of the crowning of King Mindaugas.
    I was able to catch a glimpse of
    quite a few beauties from the ground below outside. The exhibits
    look well-maintained, and include a red truck, a black steam
    engine, and a semi-modern electric locomotive, and other engines,
    and passenger coaches, all in various colours (black: the steam
    engine, red and grey: the semi-modern electric locomotive, and
    green: many others).

    Have only seen it from outside, quite impressive, with a beautiful water fountain in the square next to it.

    Fantastic museum with a good, free audio guide. The museum was quite interactive, and in particular, I enjoyed the simulator! The museum has a section where children (and adults) can explore physics and math (yes, math!).

    As a friend of Eastern European art I really enjoyed this museum. There is a great collection of Lithuanian art from different eras on display. The building is also very beautiful, as well as the cherry tree park outside the museum. Don't miss the memorial monument of Čiunès Sugiharos in the cherry tree park! His story is worth remembering.

    Lots if information is available in English which is a huge plus.
