Raseiniai region history museum

The museum is housed in the former Soviet arrest home-NKVD-MVD prison. Upon entering the museum visitors are welcomed by a dismal atmosphere of a prison – iron stairs, grey walls, a warden’s table. Visitors are able to have a look at the opened case files of political prisoners with severe sentences, whereas a virtual reality headset momentarily takes you 60 years back in time and you find yourself in a prison cell next to other prisoners, watching their surroundings and listening to their conversations.
