You should definitely visit this museum, especially if you're not familiar with Eastern European history in 20th century - this will give you a clear view of what have been happening behind the Iron Curtain

We walked from the KGB museum to what I would call the centre of the city (decent shops, restaurants) in about 10 minutes. Another 10 minutes to the touristy areas.
