Create an itinerary including Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust Museum
Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust Museum tells the story of 70,000 people forced to live and work behind barbed wire, only to be tortured and massacred in the end. The museum outlines ghetto life between 1941 and 1943; here you'll observe photos of those who were held and walk the same alleys that they once walked. You'll also discover more about the volunteers who bravely struggled to help Jews escape the ghetto. At the tourist information center you can ask for a guided tour, which provides an in-depth history of the site, detailed descriptions, and clarifications of historical data. Note that the museum includes outdoor exhibits, so dress accordingly. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Riga trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • The Latvian holocaust museum is free of charge. Definitely worth a visit especially if you are travelling on a budget. A huge plus to the museum is the old ghetto house.
