“Closed for renovation (as of Nov 12, 2012)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Located near several other attractions, the unique building that houses the museum is closed. There is an alternate site that has some of the exhibits during the renovation, but don't plan on a visit to this location in the near future.
The temporary location is Raiņa Boulevard 7, Rīga (near the Freedom Monument).

“Great lesson in history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Small museum on the same Square Blackhead house. Very well presented and informative, Display signs are in both English and Latvian. Plan on spending about 2 hours.

“Great historical introduction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Small, but powerful museum. Really only needs a half hour or so if you are in a hurry but what you learn will stay with you for much longer.
