  • History of the city with some exhibitions. Currently the museum felt a bit disjointed as there is a new museum being built the other side of the Old Town  more »
  • Here is a large collection of photos, which shows what life Latvians have had to live through during the second. World War II with, among other things. devastation. It also shows the life after the war under communism to join with freedom and independence. Many powerful images. Very interesting, but you have to be able to view and read all the information, it requires some time.

  • Latvia's history is littered with unfortunate events. Makes you appreciate our era of relative peace. Came away with a new respect for the Latvian people. Well worth a visit.  more »
