The Museum of Occupations and Freedom Fights was established in 1992. It is the only museum of such kind in the Baltic States and is housed in the same building where the People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs (NKVD) and People's Commissariat for State Security (NKGB/ MGB/ KGB) operated from the second half of 1940 to August 1991. The remand prison used to imprison and hold Lithuanian residents who had different ideas from the occupant government from autumn of 1940 to 1987 remained intact in the basement of the building. The visitors of the museum can view the exhibition located in the former death row facility.
