This museum houses a small but exquisite collection of all things 'art nouveau'. Apart from the slightly bizarre experience of having to enter a code to get in the front door it was perfect. Includes a great introduction to the architecture in the surrounding streets. One of the 'must see' attractions for visitors to Riga

Not quite what we were expecting from a museum in the traditional sense but interesting all the same. This is an original art nouveau apartment redone with all the original fixtures and fittings and is a pleasant surprise compared to the usual museum concept of security and glass cases. It did become a bit of a bottle neck as one... More

A very interesting glimpse into Riga's not so distant past, thanks to the municipal council and donors.

Art Nouveau in Riga is absolutely beautiful. The buildings in Alberta iela are gorgeous and this museum is icing on the cake. For 5 euros + 1.5 photo you visit nice fully furnished flat in art nouveau style to the last little knob. Including kitchen and maid's room. All this by yourself or with a guide, you can also try...

A well presented museum of an actual home in a beautiful building. Authentic furnishings, incredible wall decor and lighting. Well worth the price. Be sure to see all of the properties in the area, it is a great way to spend a couple of hours in Riga.

If you love this period, then you'll really enjoy visiting this Museum. Located in part of an Art Nouveau building designed by celebrated Latvian architect Peksena, the Museum consists of the architect's own apartment. It has been fully furnished in keeping with the period and, with the museum staff also in period dress, is an evocative and fascinating window on... More

Visiting this museum which once was the home of one of the great Art Nouveau architects, Constantin Peksens, is a wonderful way to learn the history and characteristics of Art Nouveau. The spiral staircase, the stain glass window, the beautiful colors of the walls and ceilings and the art work all blend for a serene living space. We had a... More

this is a small museum, so don't expect to spend more than about half an hour here (although they do show a 10 minute video at the end, but we could easily have skipped that without spoiling the experience). great for its collection and layout, pity there is no guide to draw your attention to some of the smaller items...
