Having been renovated just a few years ago, the building hosting this museum is the true jewel of this exhibit. The Art Nouveau outside architecture makes it very welcoming to walk around it and admire its structure. Then when you step in, you are greeted with a magnificent staircase that is the crown of this building. The 6 EUR it costs to enter enable you to visit three (3) floors of artworks (including the basement) of varying interest. The collection is not very big, but some pieces are interesting… while others make you wonder how they got in a museum in the first place. But that applies to almost all museums anyway… as art is quite subjective. Two things for sure not to miss are: 1) the beautiful attic, with its white-painted beams and its access to the rooftop observation deck. Unfortunately, as it was raining the day of my visit, the deck was closed… but I was able to negotiate a peak and it looks very good to stand there and observe the city. 2) the underground storage vault. It is not extremely spectacular… but knowing it used to be a potato storage back in the days, makes you appreciate it a bit more. Entrance fee is 6 EUR Storage lockers are for free Expect to spend about 90 minutes in the museum Photography is allowed

Though this is a small collection for a national museum, it tries to cover Latvian artists and geographical areas from all periods. The collection is heavily weighted in the 20th century and does cover the first Latvian period of Independence just after 1918. The building itself is beautiful and worth a look too.

Great balance between the permanent and temporary exhibitions, and the stunning building is a plus. High ceilings & a lot of light make the building & permanent collection come to life, whereas the downstairs temporary exhibition space provided a nice & atmospheric contrast.

Great museum to visit. Old and modern architecture together. Interesting collections of art. I really liked the idea how to open art collections to the visitors in the basement.

It was such a nice experience! The building looks incredibly impressive from the outside and the art inside is just as amazing! The visitors are able to observe the art from different perspectives therefore feeling more engaged into the world of modern art.
