I knew very little about Latvian history, and, as this was my first visit to Latvia, I thought I should find out more. This museum was an excellent place to start. We were lucky to arrive just as a tour was starting. The young man who did the English tour spoke perfect Enlish and was knowledgable and passionate about what he was talking about. Although we could have spent an hour and a half reading all the information, it was much more interesting and easier to follow with a guide. It was a long tour, but very cheap, equivalent to a couple of quid, and definitely the best way to get the most out of the museum. The whole experience just made me want to find out more about this fascinating country. The holocaust exhibition that they had on at the time was also incredibly moving. Don't leave Riga without a visit to this museum. It is free but they ask for donations
