  KGB museum

This is an interesting, yet horrifying museum that you shouldn't miss while in Vilnius. It explains the history of Lithuania when it was under the Soviet occupation. The exhibition tells the story of the deportation, the Partisans who fought for the independence of their country and the operation of KGB. There are lots of information both in Lithuanian and English. Downstairs there's the KGB prison where you can see a padded cell (it was creepy) and other horrible looking cells including a former execution room.

The tickets cost 4 Lt.
