Museum and fort were interesting, but definetly get the guided tour to get the best of this place. It was 10€ for whole group (we were just a couple but still only 5€ per person). Guide takes you to underground parts closed to unguided visitors....More

This venue was really interesting and most displays had English Translations which were really helpful. However, I think to get the most information I wish I had taken the guided tour

The fort is well worth a visit. Was interesting and very well out together. It definitely told the story of Lithuania through history. It was tipping down with rain while we were there and still would recommend it. Just remember a jacket..the first gets chilly.

There are two main exhibition buildings. The signage and directions are quite poor and misleading. However, the exhibits in the ninth fort building more than make up for it. Very sad place. Has exhibits showing the early uses of fort nine as a military fortress...More

Just go there to walk in the spacious park area, to see the monument and the fort from the outside. Keep the words freedom and independence in mind when you are there.

There was no cafe when we went last year. Take a couple of snacks and some water with you. You could easily spend anywhere between 3-5 hours there.
