The castle itself is fairly uninteresting, but it houses the following 2 museums:National History Museum of Latvia: The History Museum is interesting, however there is little English (Every room has its exhibits summarized on a single plaque). However, the museum does give a very good idea of Latvian history, and will give you a good understanding of the area.Museum of Foreign Art: The less interesting of the two museums: this is just a standard art museum.
