As one other reviewer here related, the museum requires that your coat be checked before you enter its sacred halls. (There are a couple little 'no coat' stickers posted about 8 feet to the right and left of the ticket counter, where you are sure NOT to see them.) I wish I had known of the 'No Coat' rule BEFORE...

This museum is in a very attractive building opposite Riga Cathedral. It was originally the Stock Exchange and therefore has some very grand rooms (worth visiting just to see them). It houses an interesting collection of foreign (ie non-Latvian) art. The paintings in the superbly opulent Venetian Hall are definitely worth a look, especially the smaller Dutch works. The porcelain... More

The current temporary exhibit showcases work from a well-known Latvian painter. The layout of this particular exhibit did not seem to follow time nor style, making it feel more like a hodge-podge of pieces with no real purpose. The same can be said for the small room on the first floor... I am still unsure if it was it's own... More

Very nicely renovated building interior. Magnificent rooms, don't forget to see the ceiling with golden statues in the old exhibition halls. Fantastic art, too!

In a very center of Old town, this is really nice museum, where to spend time, when it's raining outside and always find something new.

The Art Museum in the Bourse is not exactly worth visiting if it was only for the art exhibited there. The paintings of mostly Dutch, Flemish and German origin is mediocre at most, the porcelain is quite nice, and the special exhibition (this time "Provencalism" or something) is very small. But the building and the interior is so beautiful, it's... More

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.
