  • Entrance free thank God. The Museum is not located on the Town Hall square and the Boulevard Raina Was on the conscience. There are interactive panels, can be in Russian, English, Latvian and German read and even listen to. But! Before setting sail, make sure that you know the history of the 20th century. Otherwise, naslushaetes about the "horrors of Soviet camps" and go with false knowledge. (It was funny to watch as an Englishman in horror pokachival head). If historical knowledge in this area, there is no better don't go, if on the contrary you can visit.

  • [This review refers to the transition of exhibition] Disappointed that the Museum currently temporarily moved due to renovation work, we went because of the exciting theme still there. We started in the deportation wagon next to the cloakroom: oppressive, dark mood, good explanations, impressive, albeit depressing portrayal of contemporary witnesses. The remaining portion of the Museum is very classic information board next to information board with a few showcases, in between, and here and there a monitor; nothing really innovative. However, due to the many information, we were excited! At the beginning, there is a short intro video, which already times briefly summarizes the history. Then follow many well-written, clear texts (German translations in separate folder, if necessary), give one a good idea of the history. Great Museum!

  • Impressive depiction of the occupation of Latvia by the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. Who wants to understand the history of Latvia, here comes at his own expense. The admission is free.
