One of our best experiences in Riga. Cross the cable bridge to the island, turn right under the underpass, walk along the river and you will eventually see signs.

The museum is based around creating a space and atmosphere that makes you feel the history as much as see it. The museum is based around 16 different parts of the history, that are commentated on by a device given to you at the start....More
