Museum of Genocide Victims

The dark days of the Soviet occupation of Lithuania are preserved in this disturbing collection of exhibits, which is contained in the former KGB headquarters building. Those who drew the antagonism of the authorities were detained, tortured and often executed in this building. Some of the Museum's exhibitions include the 'Eavesdropping Room' that highlights the use of secret surveillance by the KGB and 'Life Goes On' - a look at the day to day living of Lithuanian deportees and prisoners. Guided tours of the Museum are available in English.
