Pauls Stradins Museum of the History of Medicine

Paul Stradins Museum of the History of Medicine (Latvian: Paula Stradiņa Medicīnas vēstures muzejs) is a museum in Riga,Latvia and is one of the largest medical museums in the world. The exposition presents the development of medicine and pharmacology from ancient times. A separate section is devoted to the history of medicine Latvia and one for the Soviet Union/ Russian cosmonauts space explorers.

The museum building, at Antonijas Street 1, Riga, was designed in 1875 in the style of neo-Renaissance by a Riga architect, academician of architecture Heinrich Scheel.

Leila and I toured the 4 floors and learned alot from old to new times.

I think the museum needs some renovations and seems too outdated for the younger generations. Besides us there was no-one there besides the care takers and we paid Eur 3.50 each.

Well it's not on the most favorite things to visit list of mine for Riga, Latvia but when here you are in Riga you might as well stop there.
