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.

Museum Of The Occupation Of Latvia, Riga Reviews
This museum is very easy to get to, and is less than one minute away from the Freedom Monument. It is free but requests donations as payments. Information on the boards is very comprehensive and is in Latvian and English with Russian and German information booklets available. You should definitely try to make your way to this museum if you're in Riga. It will probably only take you around an hour and is definitely worth it.
Excellent, well translated and thorough. By donation. Note temporary location near freedom monument for next couple years.
Informative and interesting, though currently it is not in this location. It will move back here in 2020 after the building had been renovated. Meanwhile it is located just west of the freedom monument.
Well displayed. Gives a powerful view of the impact of the Occupation. Impressive. For now, it is in a temporary location. Soon, it will be moved to its permanent site.
A great museum worth visiting to understand some of the harder times in Latvia.
