Not many Brits I expect realise just how much Latvia suffered at the hands of the aggressors in WWll. Not for the faint hearted, but great lesson to us all. Very well presented.

A visit here is a must. The museum is essentially an outdoor exhibit sharing the chilling story of an important part of Riga’s history. Very moving and a very important experience.

This museum is free but has the option for donations to be made. We didn't spend too long here but stopped to read the information.

Free, well laid out area that sends a powerful message. Just enough exhibits to make the point. I was given a hebrew page of explanation about the museum. Close to the center in easy walking distance. A must see.

I don't know - But if you look at the Museum Website it has details (as does the Riga Tourism Site). I think they are opem from about 1000 until 1700 if I remember correctly
