Museum Of The Occupation Of Latvia - Review

Although the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia is regarded as one of the best museums of Latvia, the museum is considered to be an ugly reminder of what the country went through under the Soviet regime. The details of the devastation caused during the Second World War and the Latvian’s struggle for independence is very well represented in this occupation museum.

True to its type of museum, the Museum of Occupation of Latvia is known to shock its visitors; the displays include a Soviet bunker along with several photographs taken during the annexation of Latvia. Most of these photos are gruesome and use your discretion if you’re traveling with young children.

  • Very boring exhibition in my opinion. The museum is supported by donations mainly. They insist you first pay and then look. But they'd better pay you to visit it. Unfriendly personnel.

  • The exhibition has temporarily moved to just behind the Freedom Monument so don't head to the location on Google maps. It's a small exhibit but it does detail very well the struggles of Latvia during Nazi and USSR occupation and finally the move towards liberation in the early 90s. It's also free so there's really no excuse not to go.

  • I highly recommend taking the guided tour, the guide was an incredible story teller, genuine & heartfelt. He knew how to add levity & humor where appropriate as well as sharing personal insight & familial experiences to bring reliability to a heavy topic that still weighs prominently on the national consciousness

  • Rellocated for renovation. Full story of USSR, Nazis and Independence of Latvia.

  • Great insight into history and incredibly well designed museum. Brilliant exhibits and use of storytelling and technology to guide you through history. Never gets boring!
