The building itself is a piece of art, beautiful ceilings, interesting art and exciting experiences as you can walk on see-through floor (at 4th floor) and look at people and art below. Really recommended.

Like most sites of interest in Latvia entrance cost is minimal - 3 euros I think. The building alone is worth that. Get the lift to the 4 floor and then work your way down. Lots to see.

Considering the price, this is a really good trip and it covers Latvian artists throughout the centuries in a fairly well-organized way. It would have been nice to have seen more about the effect that Soviet occupation had on art and society as a whole,...More

I enjoyed a number of paintings, different art styles represented. Not crowded, enough to see and not too long to visit. If taking kids I recommend they are not under 10 years old.

Love an art gallery and this one was great. You have to download the audio guide onto your smartphone - I recommend doing this before you arrive though as wifi is very slow.
