  • Excellent museum of history of Latvia in 20th century. Much information, well presented in a compact location. Good videos and artifacts of overall historical events, plus many individual stories...

  • This was a great museum especially as I come from France and we are not taught about the baltics side of the war. Be careful the address has changed

  • The newly renovated museum is excellent, just as our English-language guide. He really brought the sad story of 50 years of occupation of Latvia to life in an engaging, and sometimes even quite humouristic, way. It would have been nice if I had reserved an hour more after the guided tour in my plan, in order to investigate the exhibits on my own. Be sure to also visit a guided tour to the KGB headquarters, The Corner House, which is in a different place, about half an hour by foot away.
  • The museum tells the story of a decades-long fight for freedom and independence of a proud nation. It makes you understand an important part of Europe's history which is so important to remember - especially these days.
