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

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)
