The renovated Riga Motor Museum is ready to open its doors to visitors on the 2nd of July, 2016. During the large scale renovation works the building was completely rebuilt in accordance with modern requirements and gained larger and improved exhibition premises, a pleasant landscaped environment, as well as ease of access for every visitor. The museum includes the largest and most diverse collection of antique vehicles in the Baltics with more than 100 unique automobiles and motorcycles. At the same time the museum has become a unique education and entertainment centre in Latvia, that provides the visitors both with information and visual delight provided by modern multi-media solutions and technologies. The antique car museum features more than 100 motor vehicles dating from the early 20th century including motorcycles, military vehicles, cars manufactured in Latvia and limousines that once belonged to Molotov and Brezhnev in the Kremlin.

After hearing and reading about that place from so many sources decided to visit finally and it was just great place to be! Really worth of investing 2...3 hours to this place, specially when you have personal experience from soviet times. The museum has been created with a smile and everything looks very fresh and finished. Liked it a lot!

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 !!
