Valstybinis Vilniaus Gaono Žydų Muziejus (VVGŽM, deutsch Staatliches Jüdisches Museum Gaon von Vilnius oder Jüdisches Gaon-von-Vilnius-Museum, jiddisch דער ווילנער גאון מלוכהשער יידישער מוזיי) ist eine Institution, die sich mit der Kultur und Tradition der litauischen Juden (jiddisch Litwaks) beschäftigt. Sie hat ihren Sitz in der litauischen Hauptstadt Vilnius, wurde 1989 gegründet, und betreibt mehrere Museen.
One of the best museums and education places. Don't miss it when visit Vilnius
Very moving experience. The museum presents the facts and the ideas in a professional and sensitive manner.
This Museum is, along with the Holocaust Exhibition an excellent exhibit, and it would be very good for many more people to witness the appalling stories it reveals about the cruelty which too many unfeeling people commit against others.
We visited here in 2008 The tourist office told us it did not exist but we found it a tiny sign on a main st!!Told the real story not found in the state museum!! An amazing true story of what hsppened in WW2
Stunning art gallery and Jewish museum, the place is so moving. a glorious past of one of the largest communities in the world. very exciting. just an extraordinary experience. The art there is so beautiful and impressive, it is highly recommended to go to such a special place. To remember and never forget.
This is a fairly eclectic museum. It's labeled as the Samuel Baks museum from the outside and the first floor includes an amazing retrospective of his art, from his first notebook in Vilnius to his internationally recognized paintings from almost a century later. After this floor there are more individual exhibitions as well as a larger survey of the Jewish community in Lithuania. Underestimating the size, I didn't give myself enough time to enjoy the museum fully. I would recommend at least 2 hours to scratch the surface of multiple exhibitions.
Unique place to learn Jewish culture in Lithuania. There are interesting permanent and temporary exhibitions.
