This quiet little museum is easy to find on the main ring road around the old town. It is a pretty house with some monuments in the garden. One to the “Japanese Schindler” who did so much to rescue Jewish people from the Nazis. The cherry blossom tree by his plaque was in flower while we were there. Inside is a staggering display of the destruction of the Lithuanian Jewish community. A very helpful young lady guide gave us a talk about the secret hiding room. There are hardly any visitors. We were the only ones that day. From the comments in the visitors’ book, you can see the impression it makes on adults and children visiting. A must see.

Really informative, easy to navigate and well laid out. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable. We would recommend visiting when in Vilnius.

A fine, small museum, a bit off the beaten path. It presents a very honest history of the Holocaust in Lithuania. The staff were quite friendly and engaged. Visitors to Vilnius should spend some time here.

As someone who studies the Holocaust in depth, I have high expectations for museums. Unfortunately, this was one that I felt wasn’t worth the money or time put in.

The 6 euro entrance fee is far too high for what the exhibit offers. Comments here state that it was recently 3 euro. Now they just give you two pieces of paper to somehow explain the doubled price?

The exhibit has quality information, however it felt like reading a Wikipedia page. The information was text heavy with printed photos on boards. There are very few artifacts presented.

I did enjoy the experience they had in attic with the multimedia element. More of this should be considered in improving the museum.

Being Jewish and born in the USSR, I planned to visit this museum (got to know about it thru Tripadvisor, thanks!) during my short 3-day trip. Well, although I knew some of the history of Vilna Jewry, Holocaust and resistance, the gathering of info in one place exceeded my expectations. Stories of victims, fighters and Lithuanian Righteous of The Nations... the experience in a replica of one of the ghetto's attics that sheltered several families and was after all discovered... I couldn't hold tears.

It’s a little museum that will take approx an hour to walk around, €3 for adults and €1.50
For children. It’s addresses the horrors of WW2 but keeps the victims and their families at the forefront. Interestingly afterwards we visited the museum of illusion, the building was part of the ghetto that featured heavily in the museum.

This free museum, set in a lovely wooden house, may be small, but it's very rich in information and you can easily spend a couple of hours there if you want to know more about the Holocaust in this region. Good selection of books and postcards. Special thanks to the kind lady who so patiently gave me information when I visited. Beware that the exhibition may leave you shaken and you might need a moment afterwards.

Like most Holocaust sites I’ve visited, this one also triggered great sadness.

Whenever I come away from one of these sites, I always find myself wondering if any of the Jewish Holocaust survivors were able to retain their religious faith, and if so, how.

The site is relatively small, but the exhibition is well set out, with texts in English. Lots of information available, and a very informative video, also in English.

I went on a Sunday, and besides me, there was only one other visitor.
The lady in charge was extremely welcoming and helpful!

Vilnius has quite a bit of Jewish symbols and the local government has tried to commemorate the history of the Jewish community, that comprised almost 40 oercent of the population. However, like in Latvia, they are trying to minimize their own people participation and collaboration with the Nazi regime in exterminating the Jews and taking over their property in the most violent manner. This museum will show you - although partially - what happened. Therefore, it is an important place to visit.

This house gives a good imression of what has taken place during the holocaust in Lithuania and Europe. It even has an original hiding place.
