About Museum Of Genocide Victims, Vilnius
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.

Museum Of Genocide Victims, Vilnius Reviews
Difficult to review such a solemn place. The basement with the execution chamber was cold and chilling yet, emotional and terribly sad. Mans inhumanity to man was never far from my mind as we walked beneath what was essentially an office building. The museum outlines the bravery and suffering of the Lithuanian people. Occupied by the Russian and German armies they became submissive but fought a guerrilla war that was intelligent and heroic. The KGB selected and killed many prominent citizens and all from what appeared to be a normal government office. The feeling of death hangs in the air and it's hard not to feel the fear and terror of those frightening times. Spread over three floors, the museum is definitely worth a visit but be prepared, it is not easy, but it is a visit you should make
This a place to go, to understand and to know more about the Lithuanian history. It's a disturbing but interesting museum in former KGB headquarters. There is a good audio guide and even some texts are in French. I spent 2 hours with friends, but I could have been there for 4 or 5 hours. A lot of text and objects. Good experience !
Interesting museum, but be aware that you can only pay in cash there! Students have to hold an ISIC card, otherwise they don't get the discount. You can easily spend half a day in the museum and it's worth it
I learned so much at this museum! A very sad part of Lithuania's history, but necessary to learn about. Tickets are 4€. We spent about 1.5 hours. It's not really stroller/wheelchair friendly. There are small double doors to get through and stairs right away to go to the first floor. We left our stroller and a kind lady watched over it. There is a coat room with lockers (yay for not lugging around all our paraphernalia). There aren't graphic photos (except for one photo at the end of the prison cells and a video in the execution room) so for children it would be ok depending on maturity (obviously avoiding the execution room).
Good museum. Seems to focus on Soviet crimes and genocide on and actions of ethnic Lithuanians. Has english descriptions. A good overview of Lithuanian history during the 20th century. Basement is a must see.
