Museum of War (Kara muzejs)
The formation of the Latvian Riflemen's regiments and the ensuing battles of WWI spurred the founding of this museum in 1916. The museum moved into the Powder Tower in 1919, known as the Sand Tower in the 17th century. The 15th century edifice in its own right holds great historical value and connection to warfare, its 2.5m-thick walls are still scarred and studded with old cannonballs. Exhibitions on permanent display include: "Latvian soldiers during WWI", "Proclamation of the Latvian State and Liberation War" and "The Road Towards the Barricades - 1945 - 1994".
