A chilling place to visit. To stand where hundreds of victims of Soviet oppression where tortured and executed is very disturbing. A must visit if visiting Vilineus.

A real eye opener for any liberal westerner visitor about the fifty years of dictatorial regime imposed by the "other side" and endured by Lithuania - so, so sad !!!!

you really can't go to Vilnius and miss this. The exhibit rooms were highly informative and the prison, itself, well . . .

Historical lesson. Very interesting & informative. I specifically enjoyed looking around the basement (prison). Glad to know times have changed & i live in this era. Eerie sense at times.
