To get to know about collection of artifacts, artistic, cultural and historical importance, museum could be the right place and provides immeasurable value to the time spent there. Also, nice to enrich ourselves with the past successful stories.

Golly I loved this little museum. It is a bit of a trek to find but a nice walk along the canal and through a park. And you have to key in a number on the outside of the building to be let in but once you are in - you just step back into another era where everything you... More

A fascinating glimpse of what life was like for wealthy city dwellers when art nouveau decors were fashionable. The staircase was a wonder to behold.Unfortunately the rooms are not big enough to hold too many visitors at once and if you visit at the same time as a group you will not be able to linger.

Before you enter the museum you must first stop and admire the magnificent spiral staircase. The house has all the original Art Nouveau furnishings and everyday items with information about certain pieces. The staff were dressed in period costume and one dressed as the maid was making biscuits in the kitchen for visitors to sample.

An amazing museum! A visit to it was like time trip. You feel the atmosphere of the 19th century. There you can see the furniture and accessories from that time. The information about opening hours you can find on the official website of Riga www.liveriga.lv

Very nice interior and exhibition of a Jugend home. The personnel wore costumes matching the style. Local wedding couples also like to have them photographed there :)

It's impossible to walk through the streets of Riga and not marvel at the art nouveau architecture. Art Nouvea is probably my favourite style and it was the main reason I came to Riga. You can travel through europe and see many examples, but seldom are you able to see an art nouveau interior. This museum is a restored apartment.... More

This museum is basically a set of rooms in a large art nouveau building. For a reasonable entry charge, you are able to spend a very pleasant hour looking at classic art nouveau objects. Well worth a visit.
