It's only small but it gives you an idea of life for jews in nazi occupied riga. Also history of the armenian holocaust. Worth a trip. It's free and within walking distance so don't book with any tour operator.
Small but effective, the museum gives a very strong impression of the horror of the Nazi era in Latvia. It is within easy walking distance of the old-town, and is free.

It is good to remember, so as not to forget our dead. It is good to feel what happened when there was no Israel and jews were subject to harassment by its enemies. The staff was very helpful and the experience is worth.

A must-see museum, very emotional experience! Learnt a lot about history of Latvian and other European Jews. Only small but well worth a visit. No hesitation in giving donation.

An eye opening experience! In a short time you will learn a lot of history of Latvian and other European Jews. Still small on scale, it will make you understand more of your own history. Absolutly a must-see, and contrary to other tourist places in Riga, this one is managed by friendly people from Latvia and no arrogant Russians.
