  • For Latvia's small Jewish community this museum has quite a sizeable exhibit. Rīga was once a haven of Jewish cultural tradition due to it's large Jewish population. Mostly decimated during the Holocaust, Rīga's Jewish population is seeing a slow resurrgence in recent years. This museum was pleasure to visit, rich in history. As expected a large section was dedicated to Latvia's Holocaust years, including the notable people who saved the lives of Jews during WWII.
  • A small museum with interesting exposition. There is a possibility to get audioguide in different languages to listen explanations about every item.
