The fort itself is very impressive. Inside the museum you will not only learn a lot about the military history about this place but also about the people who were killed here. There are so many photographs of the Nazis' (and also the Soviets') victims...More

To imagine hell on earth, visit the Ninth Fort. Imagine being uprooted from your home in (for example) France and ending up here awaiting your turn to be murdered. 50,000 human beings, mainly Jews were murdered by the Nazis and their sympathisers here during WW2....More

The Ninth Fort is many things: it's a 19th century fortress built for defence by the Russians, turned into a Gulag by the soviets and a site of execution by the Nazis. It is a museum selectively telling the story of the Lithuanian struggle for...More

Everyone should visit and get to know what happened in that place. The museum and nature around is absolutely amazing.

Really learned a lot from our visit here. The audio tour was free and really helped us to understand the exhibits. If you visit Kaunas, you should visit.

First challenge, actually getting there. There is a bus stop called 9th fort and you get off and follow a path to an underpass and then that takes you into the museum. If you've got a phone just use that to find the underpass. The...More

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.
