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's probably the best place to film historical movies. But not to go inside if you have claustrophobia

Looks like a scene from transformers. Museum with audio guide is good/interesting (led me to look for spot in Kaunas street where Roman Kalita burned himself alive protesting Soviet rule in 1972 (in park on Liberty Boulevard there is a granite memorial on the ground).

This was an interesting museum and quite chilling to walk the halls and cells of so much sad history. The museum provides a lot of history of the area, different occupations, and of the fort itself. There are also many plaques to read about the people and families affected. I found the English explanations left something to be desired -... More
