Although Riga's famous for its Art Nouveau, this 19 cent edifice is an outstanding example of Venetian Renaissance. It's located opposite the biggest Dom Church on the Dom Sq, right in the very center of Old town. Just like the exterior, the Bourse museum has a stunning interior with gilded surfaces and artificial marble, which make it look palace like.... More

We swept inside on a chilly day to take in art works we had read were there: a self-portrait by Rembrandt and a Degas. Unfortunately we felt as if we shouldn't have asked about them since they were not on view. The person in the ticket booth had very poor English and we gave up trying to communicate. The map/guide...

I only visited the exhibits on the third and fourth floors. The Europeann art was beautiful, although I only recognized the names of two artists: Durer and Rodin. The fourth floor is also beautiful interior design. The exhibit of Oriental art on the third floor was also extrordinary.

This is a splendid building and well worth having a look at. The pricing system for the art gallery is rather unusual but this said the fees are reasonable. We saw the Leo Bakst (1866 –1924) exhibits. He was a Russian painter, scene and costume designer. He was a member of the Sergei Diaghilev circle and the Ballets Russes. Also... More

The museum houses a great collection of Western Paintings on the top floor and an impressive display of Oriental pieces, including clothes, sculptures from Egypt, India, Africa, and even a mummy. The temporary exhibitions were enjoyable as well. Overall, it's worth the admission ticket.

The museum is located in a beautifully restored building of Riga Stock Exchange; it is worth visiting even if you are not particularly interested in arts. The collection is not huge, but good; the museum also always has a couple of exhibitions on display (this summer these are artworks of Leo Bakst and Nicholas Roerich).

Good collection housed in impressive renovated stock exchange building. Check out the statuary representing various trqades on the exterior, and the lovely rose marble inside.

Nicely restored building with a good collection of works. Sympathetic modernisation has produced an airy interior with very nice gallery spaces. The entrance fee was €3 to see the permanent exhibitions but another €3 gave access to all the galleries including the current temporary exhibition of works by Leon Baskts. A pleasant hour was spent wandering through the exhibits out... More

Positive (+): - Great architecture - A few nice works Negative (-): - their permanent exhibition feels like they had nothing else to show - Some rooms were empty - Not enough for the price
