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.

To get to know about collection of artifacts, artistic, cultural and historical importance, museum could be the right place and provides immeasurable value to the time spent there. Also, nice to enrich ourselves with the past successful stories.

Golly I loved this little museum. It is a bit of a trek to find but a nice walk along the canal and through a park. And you have to key in a number on the outside of the building to be let in but once you are in - you just step back into another era where everything you... More

A fascinating glimpse of what life was like for wealthy city dwellers when art nouveau decors were fashionable. The staircase was a wonder to behold.Unfortunately the rooms are not big enough to hold too many visitors at once and if you visit at the same time as a group you will not be able to linger.

Before you enter the museum you must first stop and admire the magnificent spiral staircase. The house has all the original Art Nouveau furnishings and everyday items with information about certain pieces. The staff were dressed in period costume and one dressed as the maid was making biscuits in the kitchen for visitors to sample.
