"Horrific but of historic interest" Genocide Victims Museum Tip by Nicky-IRE

Genocide Victims Museum, Vilnius: 24 reviews and 28 photos

The genecide museam is situated in the old KGB headquarters and jail. You can wander around it on your own or you can rent some headphones for 12 litas each (more of less 3.50 euros). You would have to have a pretty strong stomach or not be too sensitive as this place is hardcore. You walk around the cells where the prisioners were held and tortured and hear the history and see the photos. Not for the faint hearted. I'm glad I went as I had absolutely no idea what had actually gone on in this place, but I did feel quite upset when I came out. Its just off the main shopping street in the center of Vilnuis near Lukiskiu square
