  • Free entrance. There was a lot to see. English signs were not always available. There was a deactivated machine gun you could fiddle with.

  • Well worth visiting! Especially the parts about the First World War and the subsequently Latvian War of Independence are very interesting and impressive. These parts of history are too little known in the western part of Europe. My admiration of the Baltic people in general and the Latvian in particular has grown much after visiting this fine museum in Riga.
  • Very good exhibition, just enough for one time visit. I would say that main focus is on WW1, other periods are not that plentiful, but yet decent. When you count in that the entry is free, definitely worth visiting.
