Small but perfectly preserved. Went on a Sunday and there was a children's event on - which did not disrupt our visit - in fact it was great to see the children enjoying their cultural event! Dont need to buy the audio guide as there are English room information sheets in each room

The staircase when you come in the building is really impressive. The apartment that has been renovated to its original Art Deco style is on the first floor. It is a relatively small apartment (13 small rooms in total), but includes a huge number of arc deco artistic pieces, nice furniture, and window/wall decor. You get to pick a period... More

Was a lovely addition to viewing the Art Nouveau buildings in the areas. We enjoyed walking round the apartment and the video at the end of the visit.

Very French atmosphere in all Art Nouveau district. The museum is not a building, it's an apartment on the first floor. Anyway it's worth to visit.

This was picture into the lives of well to do Latvians in the early 1900's. The authentic decor and furnishings really brought the period to life. Staff dressed in period clothes added to the experience. The staff were very knowledgeable too. If you visit Riga don't miss it. Very inexpensive.

Really well laid out, take a walk through an art nouveau flat and appreciate all the wonderful intricate decorations. We particularly liked the interior sun balcony, but each room had lots to admire and enjoy. Don't miss it.

A rather odd entrance where you have to ring and are admitted to an empty hall. You will eventually find your way in. The staff are pleasant and you get to try hats on, and walk around in them if you like. Much of the furnishings are original or gleaned from other apartments in the building, and the museum is...

You have to buzz in the door with a code, but once you do, you are in a beautiful authentic Art Nouveau interior. The staircase up into the rest of the building is worth popping inside for in its self! The staff are very helpful and friendly and dressed in period costume, which was fun. There are cards about the... More
