First challenge, actually getting there. There is a bus stop called 9th fort and you get off and follow a path to an underpass and then that takes you into the museum. If you've got a phone just use that to find the underpass. The museum is 3 parts, the vast cavernous communist era memorial hall, full of artefacts and... More

Interesting place for history lovers, a terrible view of holokaust. You can see a 9-th fort of Kaunas defence castle too. Many walking and sightseeing.

It really is a terribly sad place, but surely not to miss as it is a monument for horrific time in history of Kaunas and Lithuania. I doubt we can perceive the scale of atrocities that happened in this place, but just being there gives you shivers.

Impressive monument. I did not visit the fortress, since it was not open yet, but I was awestruck with this monument. A local to be respectful towards the victims.
