    I gave this a five - not because it is a pleasant experience - but because of the importance of its memory. We were privileged to have a guided tour by the director who, himself, is doing extensive research on the people who disappeared from this place. The visitor sees the cells, solitary confinement, the killing room among other "attractions." There has been little to change the building since the Soviets left so it is perfectly authentic. This is a heart wrenching experience. When you get back to your room, take a shower.

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

    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).

    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".

    This place is sentimental about the History of Lithuania and they have taken the experience to a pleasant level with tablets to move around and learn and read about all the historical moments and to be part of it with all the activities possible and the interaction. Worth a visit for all, local as tourist and visitors.

    Stumbled upon this museum by chance and ended up spending a couple of hours there. Fantastic displays of catholic church vestments, very accessible in drawers you can open, cabinets with beautiful ancient chalices and other altar pieces. The best thing was the centuries old organ on the first floor, you can put on a headset to listen to it, discover more about organ history and call up a keyboard on the touch screen to play the organ yourself. An interesting special exhibition about Lithuanian mission to all continents of the globe.

    Nice small memorial museum of two well-known Lithuanian Poets & Writers, Antanas Venclova and his son, famous Tomas Venclova. Carefully maintained memorial interior, fantastic small staff team, interesting exhibitions, super-top-level cultural events (meetings, festivals etc.).

    Interesting seeing art as curated by Lithuania. I'm not sure what I expected but certainly not the eclectic mix of modern installation art alongside unsettling post-Soviet paintings. I would definitely visit again.

    You easily miss this small, unpretentious museum when you walk by. It is worth a visit, though, if you want to get a taste of how Lithuania proudly presents some its artistic sons and daughters in the realm of theatre, film, music, opera and dance. Several rooms are devoted to one specific artist. Most exhibits have only title cards in Lithuanian, but when I was there, one of the museum's curators kindly explained some important details to me in English. The visit made me even more aware than before how art, in the native language, helped Lithuania protect its indigenous culture during the Russian occupation -- and how the country treasures its national culture now it is independent.
