Latvian War Museum reviews
Bit odd that you have to leave your coat downstairs, some sections had very good translations other areas you had to look at some bits of card on a chain, but we enjoyed it very much so

Not bad, interesting that we have to leave coats on the basement level vs carrying them, found that a bit odd. Overall very informative and lots of floors to explore

Free entry, large exhibitions across many floors. Mostly English translations available. Good mix of text and artifacts. Some really well done multimedia
Nice to see history of Latvia
