Latvia was occupied from 1949 to 1991 by two successive regimes,
in the forms of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. This well-curated
museum conveys what life was like during this time, and serves as a
memorial to those who died or fled as a result of the occupation.
Visitors can view film archives and see a reconstruction of life in
the infamous Siberian labour camps. A sobering and humanising
experience, highly recommended for those who wish to connect to
Latvian culture while on holiday in Riga.
