Cozy and small war museum, but with modern expositions. Perfect time spending during rainy days. You spend just more then one hour to pass it. Worth to visit.

It does cost and from memory it was 2 euros. It is very close to the main Freedom or Liberty Avenue (Laisves Av) and I would say it took me approximately 10 Minutes to walk from Rotuses in the old town to the museum. If you... More
