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

The museum is located in an old building that was originally the stock market. After a fire in the 1970s, the building was updated and is modern and old at the same time. Every bit of this building is beautiful, even the industrial tech-style bathrooms on the basement level. We paid 3-euros for the entrance and after leaving the museum... More

Excellent collection of art. 'A Girl with a Lantern' caught my attention on the first floor. Some paintings, some Eastern art including porcelain. Interesting for an hour.

Visited because of an Aboriginal and Papuan Art exhibition but saw the rest of the museum as well. It was rather small but ok for Riga. Has 1 mummy! :D Would recommend for someone who does not like spending hours and hours in museums but go for a rather quick visit (1.5 hours with a special exhibition is ok)

It would have been better if the museum had a unified fee instead of partitioning it to the different sections. Still it shows a lot of Latvian art that is worth seeing.

I stopped by this museum the first week in April. Bought my ticket for 6E but couldn't get past the security guard into the exhibition hall since jackets are not allowed in the building. I had a light spring jacket in my hand, nothing obtrusive but they said no, not allowed. At least they refunded my entrance fee but this... More

I was really disappointed with the Art Museum. While there were some general overviews, I found that there were minimalist descriptions about the art. When looking at certain pieces, its normal to have questions. For example, what is the story behind this? There was no short pieces or descriptions to help this. This would require a small paragraph or two... More

To see all the dresses was a great experience! They were so well preserved and were not boxed in, so you could go amock photographing them! Every time you had your fill, the next turning would reveal some even more elegant or artistic...Such a thrill! I wonder why you do have it on your list , yet?!
