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

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.

I like old fashion cars and this museum didn't disappoint me. The differential here is that one will see old fashion cars (and motorcycles) from the Soviet era. The facilities are also very good: lockers/toilets/a small restaurant are in a tip-top condition. It's also a great attraction for small (and big) kids. Rest assured that they will not be bored....

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.

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!

Thank peeter k
