It's like a little gem hidden in Riga. We couldn't find it at first, and it's about a 30 minute walk from the city centre, but it's worth it. The displays are wonderful, and you get a real sense of what living in such a home may have been like.

Paid extra 1.5 euros to allow for pictures... More

This is a different type of museum; it is a private apartment that has been fully restored, so we can see and appreciate how people lived in this era. The furniture is from the era, the decorations also. There is even a fully functional kitchen; we noticed the oven top was warm and were then treated to a biscuit from... More

This is the only apartment decorated in Art Nouveau style I've ever been to. It was a beautiful experience.

Even the staff dress in period costume. After walking the streets of the Quiet Area with camera clicking, this museum is a must. An old art nouveau flat kitted out in period decor. It's fantastic.

Worth visiting if you are at all interested in Art Nouveau architecture and design ... and it's right next to some of Riga's finest AN buildings. Do check out the arty Café Rasoles directly opposite,. next to the AN shop. Peter Smoothguide

A fabulous opportunity to see inside one of the art nouveau buildings with all decor and furnishings of the period. You can even dress up in period clothing if you really want to get in the mood! but it's not necessary and there is lots to see! The entrance to the block is fantastic but it really is worth the...

This is a small house, decorated in art nouveau style, that you can walk around. It's in the centre of the art nouveau part of town so a really nice thing to do after a walk around looking at the architecture. There is a little information in each room, but it's more of a house than a museum i.e. You're... More
