The fort itself is very impressive. Inside the museum you will not only learn a lot about the military history about this place but also about the people who were killed here. There are so many photographs of the Nazis' (and also the Soviets') victims that you don't only remember the numbers but also the faces behind them.

To imagine hell on earth, visit the Ninth Fort. Imagine being uprooted from your home in (for example) France and ending up here awaiting your turn to be murdered. 50,000 human beings, mainly Jews were murdered by the Nazis and their sympathisers here during WW2. Just one of many poignant graffiti scratched on a cell wall for some reason stayed... More

The Ninth Fort is many things: it's a 19th century fortress built for defence by the Russians, turned into a Gulag by the soviets and a site of execution by the Nazis. It is a museum selectively telling the story of the Lithuanian struggle for independence (conveniently overlooking widespread collaboration with the Germans) housed in a cathedral-like space which once...

After realising I had taken the bus in the opposite direction I eventually reached the place! I spent the afternoon here first of all at the well informed museum then at the prison where people where kept before being murdered. Its all well laid out and description's in English. The monument on the grounds is very poignant and there is... More

Firstly I'd recommend that you get the little map from their website to try and help you find this monument / museum. We took bus 23 from the city, took about 30 minutes, stop is displayed and its by a supermarket Silas, then you have to double back on yourself, walk past some houses and then under and underpass.. even...

It says a lot about Lithuania's history during war times. Plenty of architectural things to see. Get yourself a guide so you can ask more questions

Everyone should visit and get to know what happened in that place. The museum and nature around is absolutely amazing.

Really learned a lot from our visit here. The audio tour was free and really helped us to understand the exhibits. If you visit Kaunas, you should visit.

This is a must-see in Kaunas, It is situated a little out from the centre and I took a taxi there, and they called me a taxi for my return journey. The first thing you see is a huge memorial which in itself is worth the visit. Then you enter into a very interesting museum, filled with exhibits and information.... More
