“At last...A Non Jewish Holocaust Memorial!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

A very moving memorial to a great man who saved my cousin. The design is well thought out and presented. The guides (Lolita and Lena) are incredibly engaging and passionate. One disappointment is the lack context relative to what was happening around this incredibly human being who put his families lives on the line to save over 50 Jews ....I believe that giving more focus to the 90,000 men, woman and children who perished on Latvian soil during this period and were not as lucky as the 50 would enhance the exhibitions powerful impact.

“The perfect museum on the other side of the river”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

We visited the museum as part of an easy walk that brought us across the river to the Kipsala neighbourhood. The Kipsala area gives you a fantastic view over Riga, features fantastic wooden houses, and now has with the Zanis Lipke museum also a perfect historical and cultural point of interest. The museum is an impressive tribute to Zanis Lipke, and brings the story of how he rescued jewish people during WWII. This is done in a new building with amazing architectual elements. A small museum that leaves a mark. Highly recommended.
