The Museum is housed in facilities that include the national headquarters of the American Latvian Association as well as the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran church and Latvian Saturday school which serve the Latvian American community in the greater Washington D.C. area.
The Latvian Museum was founded in 1978 under the auspices of the Latvian Institute of the American Latvian Association, with its initial exhibitions funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The collection is especially noted for its traditional hand woven textiles.
