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.
