This museum is mostly outside. Interesting and extremely sad at the same time. During our visit there was also exhibition about genocide of Armenian people during 19th & 20th century.

Has an extensive historical perspective about Riga Ghetto area, other areas that were impacted by the Nazi were also told. Railroad car exhibit, names of people,children paintings in exhibit all added values Ellsworth your time.
