Amazing Building. Amazing Rooms. Well worth the Visit. Excellent Value. A look back in time to Latvia's History. Latvians are very proud of this. Staff very helpful. Most things are explained in English with wall Poster Information. No Linguistic Equipment but can still enjoy finding out what you would like to know. Maybe equipment could be provided for future. Would recommend a visit to anyone. You can go around on your own/couple or group. Again, an enjoyable time in history, not to be missed.
