currently on temporary site, with not all vehicles on display (ticket price is also lower). but still has a good collection, including NSU, Auto Union, VW and Soviet speed record car, Packard, Zil, Zim. Worthwhile visit, though access can be inconvenient. Take Bus 23 to Ramova.

Could be interesting either if you are a huge fan of old motors, or for kids. Unfortunately, quite far from the centre, so not worth going if you are only on a very short visit.

It is almost out of city.if you are a visitor to city , would be hard to go there. And they need to improve their collection since full visit could take 20 min. Max.

Fabulous collection of mostly Soviet (though certainly not all) cars, motor-cycles and other vehicles. All in fantastic condition and with English descriptions.

If you are a person who is really into the past, present, and future of cars this should be a stop for you on your visit to Riga. They have an interesting collection of some weird soviet cars that famous Reds have road in. The displays are not well written about, but if you know something about cars you should... More

Great collection of classic cars and motorcycles. Located near to existing racetrack. Now it`s under renovation, should be even better when finished.

This museum, although somewhat out-of-the-way for first-time visitors to Riga, has a fantastic array of vehicles, including a spectacularly funny display of a realistic wax figure of the drunken USSR Communist Party leader Leonid Brezhev in his car, which he wrecked while in a stupor (based on a true story).

Having been to similar museums in the US (Tupelo and one more :-) ), I did not expect to see something special. But I did. While most of the cars were serial models in the other similar museums I had been to, this one featured many exclusive ones - made for the Romanian king, for Stalin or given as a... More
