[ENG] Tours of the prison and the museum. It’s not an ordinary museum. In there you will have an opportunity to try on a gas-mask, the red tie of a young pioneer or buy a genuine soldier’s aluminium spoon. You will see a prison that has endured almost no changes since its beginnings in tsarist times. You will learn about the way its prisoners used to live.

The Naval Port prison or guardhouse. The building was erected about 1900 and until 1997 it has served as a place where military persons served their terms for breach of discipline. Ever since the first years of its existence it has been a place to break people’s lives and suppress their free will.
With powers changing, its prisoners changed as well – among them there were revolutionaries, seamen and non-commissioned officers of the tsarist army, deserters from the German Wehrmacht, enemies of the people in Stalin’s times, soldiers of both the Soviet army and the Latvian army and other rebels.
Mysterious and inexplicable things are noticed in the guard house – rumbling footsteps, self-unscrewing of electrical bulbs, unaccountable opening of closed doors of the cells … but the appearance of impossible images has come as the most unpleasant surprise to many a visitor.

.....Guards have been informed

OPENING HOURS – 10.00am – 6pm DAILY between 1 May and 1 October !!!
