The basics

At the Museum of Occupations and Freedom Fights, you can uncover Lithuanian history from the end of World War II, to Soviet occupation, to Lithuanian independence. It's easy to pair a museum visit with an Old Town outing, and you can avoid the crowds by pre-booking skip-the-line tickets. Learn as you go with an audio guide, and for the best value, visit Tuskulėnai Peace Park—your ticket is good for same-day entry to both sights.
