The museum features several exhibitions. One of them tells about the origin, construction and history of the Karosta. The exhibition is based on a time line, which marks the main events in the history of the Karosta from its origins to the present day. The time line is complete with objects corresponding to the periods. Interestingly, most of the objects on display were found in the Karosta.
There is also a multimedial performance about Karosta by Ritvars Embrekts, which was created as part of the “The Dream of the Future – Karosta Festival 2021”.
A three-dimensional illuminated object has been created especially for the new museum – a Liepāja map with the Karosta highlighted and models of the most important buildings and fortifications. The museum has also designed a map showing the 19th – 20th century buildings of the city. The museum has a map showing the Liepāja Fortress and its armaments built at the turn of the 20th century.
The second topic of the new museum is the 1919 War of Independence and the freedom struggles that took place in Liepāja. As is well known, one of the decisive battles took place in the Redan on 14 November 1919, for which a street, 14 November Boulevard [14.novembra bulvāris – in Latvian], on which the Redan is located, is named. This part of the Museum is designed as an Independence Hall of Fame, commemorating the heroes to whom we can pay tribute for the freedom of our country. Uniforms, replica weapons and household items of freedom fighters and Bermondtians are part of the exhibition.
All information at the museum is available in Latvian and English.
The Redan area displays artworks created during the Karosta Festivals – murals and installations.
The Redan area provides space for outdoor activities and picnics.
