  • My best memory of Riga. A richly endowed, very informative Museum, and that highlights the strength and history of this tiny forgotten country

  • This museum has in 12 halls the history of the country. Impressive are above all the photos and movies on both the first and second world war. Also many objects that show how one lived what hardships one has endured. Deep respect for what this nation has been through and the large number of victims!
