The Museum of Genocide Victims is a very important, yet somber exhibition in Vilnius that showcases the blatant human rights abuses and atrocities committed under the repressive Soviet regime. A number of documents are displayed here which stand testament to the illegal arrests, detainments, tortures and executions that were carried out against the local populate. Established in 1992, after the end of the 50 year occupation by Soviet Union, this museum is a grim reminder of all the hardships faced by Lithuanians, and how their resilience triumphed at the end.

Spent 3 hours - could have spent longer! Used a very good audio guide, can go as fast or slow as you want. Disturbing and fascinating history.
Not Pleasant, but needs to be seen Visiting this former prison gives you some insight regarding the viewpoint of the Baltic States towards their huge Eastern neighbour. The prison was actually used by both the Soviets and Nazis during their respective occupations of Vilnius, and the impact of both are covered in the exhibits. The exhibits cover the actions of both occupiers, as well as the mass executions, the exile of thousands of Lithuanians to Siberia, and the doomed, largely unknown (in the West) armed resistance to the Soviet post-war reoccupation of the country after the Baltic Republics were sacrificed by the Western Powers. The preserved cells give the visitor a sense of the hopelessness felt by the prisoners, and the execution chamber exhibit is harrowing to say the least.
Very informative. Especially the cellar floor with prisons is shocking. There is a lot to see and read. Audio guides were available in english. We spent about 2h there, but I think it takes at least 3 or 4 hours to hear all of the audio guide. All in all I can highly recommend a visit.
The real mark of the history displayed. Sometimes extremely shocking and uncomfortable but that's how all the occupations and genocides affected the country. One of the best museums in town.
Very informative and interesting to learn about the hardships of the Lithuanian people. Though I think it is too much centered on the Soviet times part. I wish there would be more information the crimes commited by Nazis.
