Good videos explaining the sad history of the occupation of Latvia. Also moving interviews with survivors of exile to Siberia. The exhibits are a bit static but I learned so much I did not know including the thousands of Jews that we killed in WWII.

This is the temporary display until 2020.
We were disappointed about this but I am sure it will be amazing when finished.
The exhibits required a great deal.of reading and did not show much more than photos.
However the videos taught me so much about Latvian history and as one of my teenagers said as we left, "No wonder the Latvian flag is flying so much everywhere they deserve to fly it after all they have been through."
Well worth a visit though and donation only on entry.

Enjoyed the set up and information of the museum a lot, mire perspective and first hand accounts than straight facts which is useful for the topic but less strictly educational than other formats. English audio Congress with the ticket.

We were recommended to go to this museum by a friend and it was an eye-opener to the various occupations of Riga by the Russians and the Germans. It was very hot in the museum.

It’s a book on a wall museum just now which was still fun but if your planning I’d be patient and wait till new one. If your kiss passing through it’s a good hour of you want a history read.
