What a treat to be able to go inside one of Riga's Art Nouveau's treasures, and even more that it is so true to its history. The museum is small, essentially one apartment, but gives a glimpse of the styles of the times. The kitchen was a particularly fun highlight - visit to find out why! The onsite interpreters were...

Located about 15 minute walk from the city centre - go through the park and along the canal for the best route. Fabulous art deco buildings are all around here, but this flat is amazing inside. Lovingly restored - approx 7 rooms with authentic features and furniture. Very interesting.

This museum includes a lot of art nouveau objects exhibited in rooms as they would have been used. There are people sitting in the rooms who will answer questions and explain the use of the objects. The stained glass windows are stunning

This museum has to be the highlight of my Riga visit. It is worth the walk from the old town and despite it being a small museum, the wealth of the exhibits makes it a feast for the eye. It was absolutely crowded when we visited on a Sunday lunchtime with tour groups, but we squeezed in and found pockets... More

A bit of difficulty finding the entrance... Go in the building and walk through the doors on the right... But it was worth the effort. Beautiful restoration, and a genuine feeling of what Riga felt like in the 1920's.

Staff dressed in period costume welcome you. Guide sheets move you through the rooms full of art and furniture from this encompassing art movement. You will want to stay behind. The biggest treat though, are the staircase and walk past many Art Nouveau buildings to get there.

This small museum is in the heart of the Art Nouveau district. As this used to be an apartment, it gives you a sense of what life would have been like at the turn of the century. Some of the furniture was taken from other apartments in the same block so it is authentic to the period.

If you like the architecture of the Alberta Iela, this will complement it well. The spiral staircase at the museum entrance is amazing! The decor and artifacts inside look new. Still not sure how to differentiate between Nouveu and Deco though!

If you like the 20's-30's, you will like this museum! Pretty small but really cute, give you a feeling of the era of "Art Nouveau". My only problem, that the stuff was pretty ignored me :D I've read, they are in traditional clothes in the rooms, and you can speak with them. Well, maybe because I arrived 45mins before closing,...

Had a bit of difficulty finding this place initially. The entrance is not particularly obvious. There was a small board which was not well translated into English. I somehow worked out that it said the door code is 12 so we punched that in and pressed the buzzer. Nothing. After another try the door miraculously opened!. After a shaky start... More
