  • Far from the traditional tourist destinations and nestled in the Woods, is reached by a dirt road about 6 km. In the late afternoon we were the only visitors; Maybe that's why we were able to explore the site independently, although it is obligatory to visit the Museum accompanied by the Guide. Not just went down in the early underground environments you are transported back in time to those years of tension and fear. The boards are in Lithuanian and English. Very interesting section dedicated to ideological propaganda and that concerning the rules of conduct of the public in case of nuclear attack. Leaves a feeling of malaise and risk awareness that humanity continues to run, especially at this time (Korea-USA-Russia)

  • Museum in an unique location (former nuclear basis) with a good audio guide. They are still expanding the exhibition, some better signage inside would be welcome.
  • Fantastic tour. The guide was friendly and took time to explain things in English for us as well. I would definitely recommend going.
  • This museum was a unique experience. Lots of visual and authentic exhibits. It all takes place in a Soviet nuclear missile base, therefore it lets you truly feel the atmosphere of the cold war. Overall it is an exciting place to visit if you are nearby.
  • Great place to visit to see an original Soviet Nuclear Base! Just wish they had taken this deeper into it... worth a look though!
  • A great museum which exactly makes you feel how the cold war was.
