Housed in a former Soviet built building, Latvians have put together a large collection of artifacts from and descriptions of the 50 years of occupation by the Soviets, then the Germans, then the Soviets between 1940 and 1990. Over 15,000 Latvians were rounded up and sent to Siberia just before the Nazis invaded in 1941. No charge for admission. Well worth seeing this very unusual slice of history. It helps one realize the meaning of independence and freedom.
Two small issues: the exhibits could be laid out more in a chronological manner - sometimes the exhibits seem to repeat points in time. Also, it is on a 2nd floor and there are only fans for cooling, no air conditioning.
