Exposition
Museum exposition “Secrets of the Tuskulėnai Manor”
The Memorial Complex of Tuskulėnai Peace Park established in 2002 in the area of the Tuskulėnai Manor reminds us of the tragic events of the 20th century’s history of Lithuania.
Since the 16th century, the area of the manor was known as a land of the Royal Manor. The manor house built in 1825 survived to the present day. The gorgeous architectural ensemble of classicism on the bank of the Neris until 19th century was famous for being one of the cultural hotspots of Vilnius, while during the Soviet occupation the area of the nationalized manor became a place where crimes of repressive structures were hidden. During the period of 1944-1947, fighters of anti-Soviet armed resistance, their commanders and clergy killed in the NKGB-MGB prison and Vilnius districts as well as participants in the June Uprising, fighters of the Armia Krajowa (Poland) and other people who were in bad with the Soviet totalitarian regime secretly were buried here.
After the restoration of Lithuania’s independence, 724 human remains were found in the area of the Tuskulėnai Manor; now, they rest in the chapel-columbarium of the memorial complex.
In the cellar of the former White Manor, the museum exposition “Secrets of the Tuskulėnai Manor” was opened. It presents the history of the Tuskulėnai Manor from the 16th to 21st century, reveals the process of death penalty decision-making and execution developed by the Soviet totalitarian regime, presents information on the people killed in the MKGB-MGB prison in Vilnius during the period of 1944-1947, on direct organizers and executioners of these actions.
“Tuskulėnai from the 16th to 21st century”
Archaeological findings and iconographic material illustrate the history of the Tuskulėnai Manor. The museum presents the restored pottery kiln from the 17th century.
“Tuskulėnai Mass Grave”
