It's free. Has sections and displays on the Armenian genocide and WW2. Located at the place the Jews were held in Riga. Excellent and worth the trip.

Worth a visit to gain the insight as to how the Jews were handled in Riga. The display has excellent pictures and information boards, you almost feel as though you were there
