The renovated Riga Motor Museum is ready to open its doors to visitors on the 2nd of July, 2016.

I really enjoyed the museum. It has recently been renovated and now it has become a modern interactive museum with a good сollection of vintage cars and motorcycles. The museum itself is small (a two-hour visit is enough) and the entrance ticket is quite expensive. But I still recommend it. I would visit again.

Great, modern museum - very interactive with lots of fun stuff for big kids and little kids alike to do. We got a taxi here from Riga old town for 12€ and the museum called one for us for the way back. Nice little cafe as well. Don't miss the chance to have your photo taken in the state car... More

At first we had doubts to go or not to go, especially taking into account the price (10 EUR/adult), but it was worth every euro we paid! We really enjoyed the interactive exposition of many retro cars, also there was the whole history shown from the invention of wheel to nowadays cars. What I found most catching was the part... More

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!
