We always try to include some history when visiting new places. This is a must do but be prepared as it had an impact on all of us. So sad to think of such a recent history that destroyed so many.

I have not seen any storage room for language there.
Buonasera. Mi scusi, ma non ho capito perchè il museo è a Vilnius, in Lituania, e la guida narra la storia della Lettonia ed i giri giornalieri sono 3 in inglese e 3 in lettone.
