We visited this museum as part of a tour of the 3 Baltic states and while on a walking tour of the city. The museum is located in an apartment where the Latvian architect Konstantins Peksens lived and worked until 1907 and was built in 1903 as Peksens’ personal residence. The building was designed by Peksens together with then-student of... More

The museum building was built in 1903. It has been a home to a architect Peksens. They say that the interior is very characteristic only to Riga. I don't know about that but in anyway this place is really a worth of visiting. My friend did not like it because for him it was too small!

Here you can see the real art nouveau interior design. The apartment is charming and really beautiful. The only problem is that you pay 6.50 euros to visit a place really small..at the same price you can visit the newly renovated huge and beautiful Latvian Modert Art Museum not too far from this museum, which i really suggest to visit!

The art collection inside is very good and interesting. But, matching it in every way is the wonderful artistic marble walls, and pillars of the whole inside. It is almost worth the visit only to see the building itself from the inside.

Our trip to Riga was not only about drinking and eating well, but diving into the cultural history of the city. Musee Art Nouveau was a must visit for a Jugend fan like myself, and it did not disappoint. It stores a genuine example of how many fancier houses and interiors looked like around 100 years ago - well if... More

OK, maybe I am not an art nouveau fan -- but charging 6.50 euro for basically being allowed to view a nicely decorated apartment is very expensive. On top of that they charged 1.50 euro for the right to take pictures. Before we knew it, we passed the 5 or 6 small rooms and were outside again. This is not... More

This is a lovely museum. It is laid out as a family home from the art nouveau period. Some lovely furniture and decorative items. Nice place

This museum is in a ground floor apartment of an artist and his wife, now long gone. You see some of his own furniture designs and decorations, and also other furnishings of the period around 1895-1910.. Many have the curves and sweeping contours that characterize art nouveau. Other Latvians have donated family heirlooms of the period to this museum, so... More

This was OK, though a bit pricey in comparison to other attractions, for somewhere that fills less than an hour. The museum is set out as an appartment with original art nouveau decor in each room. The objects are very pretty, and there's plenty of them. No real explanation though - no history of art nouveau, no description of why... More
