A hidden gem on the outskirts of town but absolutely worth the trip, particularly on a rainy day ! Excellent displays and some very impressive vehicles on display. Lots of interactive stuff to occupy kids who may not be so interested in cars. Highly recommended !!

A freshly renovated building opened 2 July 2016, houses a beautiful collection of cars, along with a few motorcycles. The collection is not the biggest but it is impeccable in its cleanliness and organization.

Terrific graphics and stories in Latvian, Russian and English. The range and quality of cars is superb, and the story starts with the ancient Egyptians and Romans. Also some really interesting film on screens around the museum (can we have some more seats to stop and watch them please ?). There's a café which we didn't use, but looked good.... More

A must-visit place recently opened after the rennovation. Spectacular cars with a story behind, amusing interactive activities suitable for all ages. Worth your time and money, besides you will get a great Soviet Style photo footage with a retro car to your inbox if you use an in a interactive photobooth.

At first the price for adults seemed a bit a lot, but it is worth every cent. Trully excelent exhibition. Thus I would have liked to get in not only in the bus, but also in one of the oldtimers.
