The approach along Alberta street has some fantastic Art Nouveau building facades. The lobby of the museum has a spectacular spiral staircase and then the visit begins in the basement with quite a good film about architecture in Riga. The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic about the museum and its period. The apartment was rather disappointing as it was... More

The museum is not worth visiting. It has a few rooms, quite badly decorated. The only great thing about this museum is the staircase, which is lavishly decorated and is a great element of the art nouveau style.

Very interesting, informative. Nostalgia! I remember from my childhood many things, presented in the Museum. Very pity the movie does not translate to English.

Every inch of this house has been designed in great detail and great good taste by its original architect-owner, a lover of art nouveau. The wall coverings, stained glass, ceramics, glassware, even the cutlery, are icons of the art nouveau genre. Well worth a visit. One of the great art nouveau museums of Europe.

An excellent modern museum in a beautifully refurbished building. Lots of information regard Riga's part in the Art Nouveau movement including interactive and static displays in the basement and the whole first floor perfectly staged as an apartment of 1903. We found the staff very enthusiastic and attentive. A very memorable couple of hours.

Baltic Art Nouveau is beautiful and relatively unknown I would say. This museum gives great insight in the Nordic variant to Jugendstil. Eye-opening as well as eye-pleasing. A good introduction to a walk through the amazing neigbourhood.

This is not a very big museum in a Jugendstil building (so worth just even because of a glimpse of what is actually inside these super-decorated houses). It consists of two parts - a 'typical' fully furnished Jugendstil apartment, with kitchen utensils, pantry, etc. Downstairs, in a basement, there is an interactive exhibition telling about history of Jugendstil in Riga,...

This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We were in a group and were immediately shuffled into a room to watch a short video which felt a bit strange as soon as we got in the door but its only for about 10 minutes and it seemed to be the thing that the volunteers wanted us to do. The house was... More

If you visit Riga you MUST visit the Art Nouveau exhibition. They have decked out rooms in the AN style which is so beautiful. Art using the natural world inside your home reflected in colours, shapes and styles of textiles, ceramics, wood and metal. The kitchen made us all go wow!

Riga Art Nouveau Museum was opened on April 23rd, 2009. It is located in the apartment where the outstanding Latvian architect Konstantīns Pēkšēns (1859 - 1928) lived until 1907. The building was constructed in 1903 as K. Pēkšēns private house.
