You are here


The museums of Latvia invite you to see, learn, and experience.

If you are interested in history, then visit Karosta Prison, the Corner House, or Līgatne Bunker. In Karosta Prison you will see prison cells and a punishment cell built around 1900. In Līgatne you will find a secret underground bunker that was built around the 1980s for the government in case of nuclear war. In Riga you will have the chance to visit the former headquarters of the Soviet KGB – the so-called Corner House, where you can take a guided tour through the prison cells.

Remnants of the olden days will welcome you at the Ethnographic Open-Air Museum, where the historical dwelling houses of farmers, craftsmen, and fishermen are displayed. Here you can also find traditional craftsmen and experience the celebrations of Latvian annual festivals.

After a walk through history, visit the Aldaris Beer Museum to taste the local beer and learn the secrets of brewing. Treat your family at the Laima Chocolate Museum, where the chocolate can be seen, tasted, heard and felt.
