  • As for me a must see for people who come to visit Riga. Very impressive and especially very touching to see what atrocities the Latvian people have undergone in both the German and Russian occupation. The museum is small in size and through a lot of text the museum takes you through a timeline, along in this history. What I do find a disadvantage is the few interaction. It is mainly a lot of reading text on the wall and sometimes a movie fragment. In addition, it is a free museum to visit and they maintain everything using gratuities and gifts. This is of course also advisable to do this.
