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.

  • 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

  • Great museum to learn the whys and wherefores that make up the unique Baltic outlook on modern world history

  • 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!

  • It's small. Only need an hour. The museum is in Latvian and English and includes some videos. It's by donations, so go and give what you think it was worth.

  • Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn more about the history of Latvia and the Baltics in general!
