THE MUSEUM'S MISSION: REMEMBER. COMMEMORATE. REMIND.

Remember what happened to Latvia, to the people and land of Latvia during the Soviet and German National Socialist regimes, from 1940-1991;
Commemorate those who were unjustly convicted and murdered, who died in foreign wars, those who suffered and died during the repressions and deportations, those who fled the occupation forces, and those scattered throughout the world;
Remind the powers of the other states of the world of the offences carried out against the Latvian state, its land and people. 

 

The Museum of the Occupation of Latvia is a state accredited private museum, founded in 1993. It is maintained and managed by the public charitable organisation the Occupation Museum Association of Latvia (LOMB).

In 2006 the Latvian Parliament approved the Law of the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, which established relations with LOMB, provides state financial support for the museum and strengthens the museum’s right to use the building and adherent land. In 2010, 2011 and 2012 the museum received only 10% of its yearly operational budget from the state, the other funds were donations from visitors and supporters. The largest support for the museum comes from the international Latvian community – both organisations and individual donors. 


A visit to the museum is part of the diplomatic protocol of Latvia and the museum is visited by many foreign leaders, diplomats and other representatives on official visits.
