There was Italian portrait painters exhibit on the museum that I wanted to see. Some pieces were really nice but perhaps it was a small disappointment. The permanent exhibits has some lovely and interesting pieces but somehow I expected little bit more. I don't feel like I lost time and/or money anyway. The buildin itself is very beautiful!!

Whoa...avoid like the plague. Woman at ticket desk mentioned the coat check as an option but said it was not necessary. Went to first exhibit and had my ticket stamped by the guard, who then told me I HAD to check my coat or I couldn't proceed. Went back down and politely asked for a refund, which I recdived after...

Absolutely stunning gallery, but be prepared to be stalked by the attendants. The building itself is opulent, and it's really refreshing to see so much Germanic art. Would definitely recommend.

Most Riga attractions can be appreciated from the outside but if there is only one building where you should go inside, it is this. A surprising and eclectic collection of Western European art on the 4th floor and Oriental art on the 3rd floor. The 4th floor included some stunning Meissen porcelain which nearly matches that on display in Dresden,... More

I'm not sure if I liked the building better than the artwork! The old stock exchange inside is just incredible, perfectly preserved and ornate. Art includes oriental, European and Latvian pieces. A fantastic collection of paintings and porcelain. Well worth a visit.

This beautifully renovated museum has a good display of European paintings on the fourth floor (it is very good to be able to focus on lesser known painters and admire their outstanding talents) and various "oriental" exhibits (art and crafts from Japan, China, and Indonesia), as well as local Latvian porcelain and pottery collections. A highlight: a special exhibition on... More

A gorgeous building is the old Stock Exchange and the current special exhibition is well worth seeing and if you know nothing about this wonderful artist (we didn't) please stay for the film playing in the room alongside the exhibition. Celmins is amazing and Latvia must be proud of her success. We id not get the opportunity to see the... More

Until 22th June 2014 it is possible to see collection of Vija Celmins (USA) works ( paintings, graphics, installations) . I find the essence of Vija Celmins works is to feel again and again things common for everybody - stars, earth, water; simple and clear from my childhood and old as the world. http://rigasbirza.lv/en/home

This art museum cannot pride itself on having a very impressive regular collection, but being inside the building is worth the trip. Be patient at the ticket office, and check in advance whether the special exhibition deserves buying a more expensive, combined ticket.

OK, it's not the Met but if you consider the resources Latvia can put towards an art museum you will be impressed. The building itself is worth a stop .... but the art inside is worth an hour or so. It's an interesting collection, mostly European. I speculate to myself how collections like this are accumulated.
