the first part is more general information, the second part out in the courtyard and underground thats what really grabs you and fills you with emotion. Its crazy how this could be happening so centrally in town and no one could stop.

The KGB museum is one of those places that show us how really horrible people can be to each other. Fear was the tactic used to try to control people and the Soviets were masters in fear. The 1st two floors are displays of the...More

This museum offers explanations in English. Visiting was an unforgettable experience. We had no idea what they went thru with both the Nazis and the Russians. Do not miss this place.
