This museum is very well done. The individual stories are incredibly moving. I had very little knowledge of the Holocaust in the Baltic states before visiting this museum and learnt a lot.

A budget short off-season break in Vilnius opened my eyes and senses to the enormity of the crimes committed during WW11 by the Nazis and their willing accomplices in Lithuania. This unassuming little green house museum poignantly illustrates the full horror, together with its atmospheric...More

Difficult to find museum, set back from main road up a hill and looked like a green shed from outside! Very deceptive! Lots of information inside, staff very helpful. Lots of upsetting things to see but important to know what happened. Recommend a visit to...More

This museum is tucked away up a back street and looks almost derelict - very few people around outside so I almost thought it was closed. It's a very small building but very pretty and you have to ring the doorbell to get access. The...More

a very intimate museum that gives you a view of the rich panoply of Jewish social and domestic life before the war and then a dark vision of the horrific efficiency of the holocaust. It is small but effective.The use of diaries and photographs images...More

Very interesting museum which is well set out. We found the green house easily enough, it is sign posted from the main road. We spent about an hour here, there was lots to read and lots of photos to look at. Definitely worth a visit.

Ironically,as the disabled were also victims of the Holocaust, there are steps up to this museum with no alternative access and in any case the door is too narrow for a wheelchair. Very disappointing

This museum presents the terrible history in a very informative and respectful manner. It has information on people who tried to help as well.

This history is always shocking, complex and long, Museum is well divided in some different rooms, explaining facts step by step. There´s a good view about KGB prision, too.

I think it was open every day. Entry is very reasonable and for not much more, you can add entry to a Gallery.

I seem to think it was €5 or less per person. There are lots of boards with pages & pages of writing on the wall. You could spend 3 or 4 hours there if you wanted to read absolutely everything- but that's tricky as at most... More
