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

We arrived an hour before it was due to close and they turned the lights off as we started to walk up the stairs. Unfortunately can't comment more as didn't get to see anything other than a quite magnificent staircase.

Think the staff enjoy people dressing up as they do I walked around with a huge top hat on like a Victorian bumble bee bumbling through the rooms that have travelled back in time, Overall a really nice experience also take the time to walk down the road and take in the areas lovely architecture .

Really great museum, you can dress in antiq costumes and see how rich people were living in that time. Only the tour was to short and tickets is too expensive for that!

Who needs a time machine when you have the Museum of Art Nouveau? As you start the tour it seems as you enter another period. Try to imagine that in a few seconds the house tenants will enter and use all their beautiful items. Do not miss the kitchen and pantry!

I like the attention. The decoration is like an old flat from that period in Riga. It is just a little too short the tour and it should be less expensive or have some special price for students.

Art Nouveau and the technique is not you may connect together on the first thought. That's why it was interesting to explore this exhibition. On that place you could connect the technological achievements to architecture and to art on that time. Small but very informative museum.
