The Museum of Art Nouveau is worth a visit. It is in an apartment preserved in the style. The workers there are dressed in costumes of the day and you get to go from room to room looking around. It is in the Art Nouveau district which is well worth walking through there are streets of this style and Riga... More

the museum is small, one apartment, but it's become full of details from the époque. A nice pastime when in Art Nouveau district! A truly genuine experience!

This museum was in a house where actually a person lived in the Art Nouveau period. Much of the things were original. A friendly woman in the kitchen baked cookies which we tried in the old fashioned way. She explained all the stuff to us and was so friendly. It's really nice to see and I also received a student...

Interesting museum offering an insight in the living conditions of a middle class 1903 family. The apartment is restored to it's original 1903 condition and furnished accordingly. I miss a wider introduction the the art noveau (jugend), and also I think the museum could offer a wider range of exterior samples too. Museum has a small 'cinema' showing a video... More

Strange fat lady sculpture outside that looked like the Michellan Man. This is a large Red brick building which doesn't look like a museum at all. Didn't go inside but went to look at some of the houses nearby that are worth a look.

I think it is mediocre museum. You'd rather go to the fifth floor to visit artist's house. That one is cheaper and you will be accompanying by a guide (university student).

I should have realised by now that Art like this isn't really my cup of tea. It was ok having a look round for three euros and the video at the end gave a bit of an insight into Riga, a bit of history and some information on the architecture which was interesting but the museum itself didn't really interest...

Advertising yourself doesn't seem to be the done thing in riga. We put in all the effort to find this place, they put an A-frame up pointing so it can't be seen from the road. Entrance hall is dark and dingy - not welcoming at all. The museum itself it ok,there has obviously been a lot of time and effort... More

It took some time to find the museum and, even when we found it, we were told at first that it was closed? We were then let in and found that there were other visitors there, so very confusing. Definitely worth a visit. Staff were very knowledgeable and all dressed for the period. Some interesting furniture and artifacts - like... More

I am a real Art Deco / Art Nouveau buff and was really looking forward to visiting this museum. It's basically someone's apartment and the look of the rooms has been restored. Well ... what can I say I honestly expected more. The decor is rather shabby (I know, I know - it's authentic and all, but it just seemed... More
