The Latvians are obviously a very determined and strong people. They have been repressed over the centuries by the Swedish, Russian and German nations but have survived and are now their own independent state. An insight into their history, it's interesting, harrowing , moving and staffed by knowledgeable guides.

Exterior looks quite attractive but there's still a lot of renovation work going on and no signs that it will open any time soon. A quick walk past on the other side of the road is sufficient.

How curious to close the museum for renovation in the year of being European City of Culture 2014! Not the only thing closed either so a considerable disappointment and poor planning on someone's part.

Visitors should know that the museum is closed for renovation pursuant to Riga's 2014 designation as Europe's cultural city.

The main venue of the National Museum of Art is closed for refurbishment, but side venues, like the Arsenals, is still open. The current exhibition showed the obvious: Art exists in dialogue with the community around the artists. The Latvian artists in exile became Californian, German, Swedish and Australian artist. Any particular Latvian influence is not possible to trace. Despite... More

The flat of the artist couple Romans Suta and Aleksandra Belcova in Elizabete iela is now a musum under Latvian National Museum Of Art. It's closed Mondays and Tuesdays, and not that easy to find, although it is on Riga's main street just a stone throw from the landmark Hotel Latvija. We visited in March, and were not too surprised... More

The main building is very impressive, but you got to see the paintings if you like art. I heard the main building is under renovation.

The work of Klucis was a real find, we had not heard of him or seen his work, mainly photographic collage during the Russian constructivist period. I found the work exciting and the film interesting full of original footage and informative about art during the 30s. Unbelievable that he was arrested and shot after the amount of work he had...

A wide collection of art which told a story about Latvia and its art history. Very fair price too. I loved the late 19th century works of Latvian landscapes.
