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.

The Genocide Victims museum is probably the best I have seen for a long time. It is located close to the centre of town and it took me 3 hours to go through. It left a lasting expression on me. I think everyone should visit this museum.
Excellent museum. Excellent translations into English, really varied exhibitions and so thought provoking. Having been to many such museums in Eastern Europe, this has to rank as one of the best
Very heavy history , not just for the locals but a forever warning light for human being in general. Peace is never cheap. KGB prison in the basement gives your the chill, especially the “execution chamber” that still has the actually bullet holes preserved on the wall. Make sure your are psychologically and emotionally ready before you go cos it’s not gonna be easy. But if you think you can handle it, this is a must go place . Note: cash only for the tickets.
My friends and I spent much longer than we'd expected in here because we read almost every word on the information boards in this museum. Very informative and well structured, the exhibitions taught us so much about KGB and the history of Lithuania.
Important history well worth seeing. The story is grim but it is very important to know and not forget how people can act in a given setting. It is also interesting to visit the kgb museums in the other baltic states to compare and contrast. This was my second visit at the museum. 30-90min time to see and read to get an overview.
