Pretty spectacular place, but the exhibitions were centered too much on single person's histories instead of the overall view of the story and its facts. It was pretty much room after room after room with another 20 people and a few sentences of their lives....More

I found this a very moving experience, a monument dedicated to all who were massacred by Occupation forces, What is shocking is how recently some of this occurred, Lithuania has suffered throughout history, but the atrocities committed by Nazis and KGB are so recent they...More

This place is so special for it's history. And the fort - huge, impressive and amazing! But I must say that Trip Advisor leads travellers to the wrong side, not the parking by the fort.

If you have any interest in history, or even if you don't. This is a must visit. We didn't take a guided tour, something I wish we did, but a lot of information is available in English anyway. You'll be fine even if you don't...More

Until visiting Lithuania, we knew little of its history. Ninth Fort is an incredible place to visit to learn of the horrors the citizens have endured. Having only two hours to spend there didn’t really give us enough time to look at all of the...More

We unfortunately visited the fort on a Monday and the Museum wasn't open. But we were able to wander all around the grounds and saw several underground cells, moats, gas chamber vents, memorials to the 50000 dead and a huge sculpture. We are so pleased...More

We went in the middle of winter, this was a bad idea. It was -16° outside, so inside it was only colder, even the guide offered to cut the tour short because it was so cold and there isnt any heating. It was very interesting...More

The ninth fortress is a haunting place to visit, although we have seen a number of concentration camps or prisons previously. There is a unique exhibition in each and every cell. For us, the most memorable one is the story of the brave Japanese diplomat,...More

I took bus #23 from the train station. There is no bus stopping at the museum itself. The closest stop is "9-ojo forto muziejus". You will then have to find a walking path that crosses under the divided expressway to get to... More
