This house is a sad reminder of Lithuania's short period of independence. This year is the centenial - 100 yrs of independence interrupted by 80 years fo the Third Reich and Soviet domination- Never Again!

If you want to learn abour Lithuania's history, then this is the place. Small enough to walk it through without getting exhausted, and big enough for a real historic time travel. Worthwhile.

It was very cold so we wanted to visit anything. Have to say after being round in Lithuania and read a bit already no big surprises here. Was a bit bored and building itself is not impressive at all. You easily pass it by.

A very interesting museum about the presidents of the republic(s) of Lithuania as well as the history of Kaunas being the capital of Lithuania. Located in the heart of Kaunas city centre it is definitely worth a visit and have a nice meal afterwards in...More
