Lonely Planet review

The Baltics’ oldest museum, is situated in the monastery’s cloister at the back of the Dome Cathedral complex. Founded in 1773, the exhibition space features a permanent collection of artefacts from the Bronze Age all the way up to WWII. The three-room Museum of Barricades of 1991 , also at the back of the Dome Cathedral, details the events that took place in Rīga in January 1991 through models, replicas and photographs.
