Call ahead and make sure they are open. Then also ask for a guided tour in the language of your choice. This prison was an unfortunate part of history. Housing and torturing political prisoners under the Soviet Union.

This museum is one of the places that we must keep visiting and we must keep preserving to remember the past and to learn from it. It is very difficult to really understand and feel what happened in that place, a visit is highly recommended.

Fantastic place, very well preserved. Reading the English guide cards really helped us, as we wandered around on our own. Unfortunately the exercise yard was out of bounds so we didn't get to experience that. There is no entry fee but we left a donation...More
