We arrived at the war museum by accident at 5pm - it closes at 6pm as we were curtly told by the lady behind the information desk. There are free lockers for storage of coats, bags etc which is a good touch.
The exhibitions are well organised with interesting artefacts, unfortunately all of the information is written in Latvian. Some of the rooms have laminated information sheets in English and others have very big guide books that are frankly quite overwhelming.
Throughout each room, we were followed around very closely by museum staff who watched our every move which was very disconcerting! At 5:30 we noticed that the staff were closing up a lot of the rooms which we took as a not so subtle hint to leave. Not a single member of staff smiled, or were polite in anyway whatsoever.
Overall, the museum itself would have been great if information would have been more easily available in other languages. The bunker is a great touch.
