This small museum housed in an historic medieval building traces the evolution of Latvian sport from the late 19th-century when cycling, swimming and wrestling were all the rage to the present day when hockey and other winter activities seem to dominate. Look at black and white photos, old medals, posters from the 1930s and some truly interesting memorabilia like world champion Uljana Semjonova’s enormous (men’s US 21/EU 58) basketball shoes! An excellent colour photo exhibit is available upstairs.
