Можно купить сувениры по ценам дешевле, чем везде в городе. В экспозициях ни слова на русском языке — только латышский. Есть гиды-каталоги на английском. Вход бесплатный. Детям будет интересно тоже.

Довольно интересный музей, особенно если учесть, что вход бесплатный. Но минус в том в основном вся информация к экспонатам на латышском
