Barricades Museum

Playriga.com the site that started as a web site for tourists, evolved to be against tourists (especially sex tourists), afterwards changed again to focus on art and culture and eventually crashed and was restored from old backup!
The site has still has prices in Lats (LVL), pages are not updated since long long time ago, but in any case it stays as it is as a nice souvenir to old times.

The Barricades Museum are actually three rooms in the building in Kramu street. If you want to go inside, first you have to knock on the door Nr. 1 and the nice lady will unlock you the museum. You don´t have to pay any entrance here. The exhibition at the museum centres on the events of January 1991. Inside the museum you can look at the model of the positions of the barricades, view the photographs or play the videos and listen to audio recordings.

The museum was established in 2001 and received government accreditation in 2003.
