“I learnt everything I needed to about Lithuania from this visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

December 2011, my first business trip to meet people in Lithuania and I arrive in freezing temperatures in Vilnius,a city under snow and ice - beautiful but I had heard about the museum and decided to visit. It is hard to believe how much this country has achieved in the short years (only 20) since they became free of Russian rule and it's even tougher to imagine the hardship these great people have endured in the years under the nazi's and this museum visit, emotional and at times depressing, showed the fighting character of Lithuanian people. The museum is interesting, it's informative, it's shocking, it's depressing, it's scary, it will make the hairs on your nexk stand up and it will teach you that evil can always be conquered. After this visit it taught me the respect I have for the Lithuanian nation. A totally must visit!

“Visiting the Khb Museum in Vilnius was a chilling experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

This excellent Museum located in the very building that was the headquarters of the KGB until Lithuania became independent in 1991 is gruesomely real. The prison rooms have been kept just as they were, even the walls have not been re painted in some
places. One can almost hear the prisoners screaming. The upstairs rooms are well laid out with dioramas, and old letters, clothes, old photographs, and sundry other memorabilia exhibited aesthetically.

“A very creepy place....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

You have to go visit this place....it's simply amazing....and not in a good way.
Especially the cellar was really creepy....you just can't believe that a place like this was in use just a few decades ago.
