  • Many interactive, so many different stands with information! The higher the more interesting. Listen, watch the video clips too! The museum is free interesting, the outside in the tower are visible stuck cores.

  • If you are very interested to know the involvement of Latvia in the World War and also the military forces do put this place on your list. If you are also interested to see the weapons used and the army uniform of German Army and Russian army you can find them here.
