About Green House

The Holocaust exhibition, which is also called “Green House”, is located near the center of Vilnius at Pamenkalnio str. 12. It is one branch of the Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum.

The seven rooms of the museum tell the story of the once flourishing Jewish community in Lithuania (“Litvak” community) from the times of the grand duchy of Lithuania, until their tragic death in the 20th century. The main focus of the exhibition is on the Holocaust.

Renovated in 2010, the whole exhibition is in English and Lithuanian and includes many new documents, new exhibits and audio-visual material, such as testimonies.
