Museum Of Genocide Victims - Review
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
Visiting this museum was an extremely intense and moving experience. It's a difficult subject, but the history is presented tastefully and respectfully, but without sugar-coating anything. The building is fairly nondescript on the outside (probably the original intent), which contrasts starkly with the horrors that occurred inside. Worth a visit, but perhaps not with small children.
One of the best museums I've ever visited. It was stunning and really gave thought for food. Some rooms were giving you the chills amazing. Just go
Visited museum twice, 1st time in 2008 named "Ocupation museum" and reflected both occupations - soviet and german. Now U will not find anything abt german invasion during WW2, chameleon way of changing attitude lithuanians to own history is looking strange in this case. Better to use guide.
Very interesting museum. Must visit the KGB prison underground. So impressive
This is an absolutely amazing museum and chilling/ haunting in some points. I would recommend that anyone visiting Vilnius visit this site. It provides you with an excellent understanding to the impact WW2 had on the Jewish population and explained the impact of Russian and German Rule of Lithuania. In the basement there is are the original cells, exercise area and execution chamber. I cannot explain how chilling this was and I would highly recommend a visit
