A must-see in Riga

A must-see. Renovated art-noveau/jugend style apartment. Fantastic! Compulsory for architects and interior decorators!

Little bit small but worth a look, especially trying out the hats and taking photos afterwards. A good introduction to appreciating some of the architecture of Riga.

Very interesting and different. Even the kids liked it. Riga is the Art Nouveau/jugend capital of the world, so this museum is a must.

I personally thought that this museum was a bit too small in relation to the entrance fee. Even so, the apartment is beautifully restored. If you, like me, love jugendstil architecture and interior design, you should not skip this place. I especially loved the fun little furniture pieces like the gorgeous chess table.

Walking through this art nouveau apartment will transport you back in time... a particularly beautiful time. It will help give you a feel for the buildings in the neighborhood and that period in Riga's history.

This museum is an apartment decorated in the art nouveau style of the early 1900's. Worldwide I doubt there are many such museums and anyone interested in art nouveau should definitely visit this one.

Amongst so many wonderful Art Nouveau buildings in this part of Riga you must go inside to see the wonderfully laid out apartment which is well described in English info cards. Excellent video of the history of Art Nouveau in Riga precedes the visit.

The staircase at the entrance to the museum is incredibly beautiful, however, the entrance itself is quite difficult to find and the museum is situated on the bottom floor rather than occupying the whole building. It is quite small and is an interesting look around a typical art nouveau house but is a bit lacking in space and immersion. It... More

This museum is situated in the heart of one of the best selections of Art nouveau buildings in the city. Definitely worth combining a visit to this attraction with a walk round the area. Be advised that to gain entry to the building where the apartment is, you have to dial 12 on the Keypad by the door. Its not... More
