The Europe’s only museum dedicated to the Sun is in Riga!There are no two similar nations or cultures in this world. However, the Sun is equally significant in many cultures around the globe, and people depict it in many different ways. We welcome you to the Museum of the Sun to see for yourself the diversity of ways how humans see the Sun!

The funnest part of my visit was painting a little sun, the lady that "welcomed" us didn't really interact with us, just handed a book about the museum and told us about the tea available.
