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.

Impressive monument. I did not visit the fortress, since it was not open yet, but I was awestruck with this monument. A local to be respectful towards the victims.

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
