Riga Motormuseum

As adults who love visiting different kind of museums around the world at any cost, entrance fee (10Eur) was more than acceptable for us and we really enjoyed all of the expositions and interactive way of how muse...
This is quite a small but defiantly one of the best motor museums I have been to and I have been to a few including Porsche, Mercedes and VW at Wolfsburg.

Latvian National Museum Of Art
#3 of 75 Museums in Riga
What I really enjoyed in both Estonia and Latvia were national art museums that give you a great sense of their national artists (and history), but don’t take your entire day.
Just simply one of the more beautiful museums I have visited with a variety of exhibits covering a range of style that deal with the Latvian history.

Kgb Building File No. 1914/2014

One can visit churches & museums in almost any city.
Unlike similar museums in the old East Germany, this place hasn't been spruced up for tourists.
Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum
#5 of 75 Museums in Riga
I've been to ethnographic museums in Finland & in Takayama, Japan but this is definitely my favourite as it has over 120 incredible wooden buildings that make you feel like you've stepped back in time.
Museum established at 1924th and reflect traditions of European open air museums.

Musee Art Nouveau
#6 of 75 Museums in Riga
One of the great art nouveau museums of Europe.

Museum of Riga's History and Navigation
#8 of 75 Museums in Riga
We saw five other museums after this one and I got the history in the order and then fine tuned the devastating years some of the Latvian people endured with the other museums.
The museum is housed by the Riga Dom Cathedral in the heart of the historical centre of the city; Riga old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Museum of the Occupation of Latvia
#9 of 75 Museums in Riga
Both here and at the Powder Tower Museums I learnt more about Latvia, the wider region and World Wars 1 and 2 in the East than I had ever known before.
Tied to the "Corner House" KGB museum (the "Corner House" is an adjunct of the Occupation Museum, this venue focuses on the quest for Latvian independence that began in World War I, and walks a twisting path throu...

The collection of the museum cannot be compared to the great museums in western Europe but it will certainly keep you occupied for 1 or 2 hours.
This is an excellent museum in the heart of Riga, organizing fantastic art exhibitions; I visited the last one last week, this was a collection of paintings from Prado (Madrid)- Rubens and other classics, as well...

Jewish Museum / Museum Jews in Latvia
#17 of 75 Museums in Riga
The museum focuses much more on Jewish life in Riga before the Holocaust than during or after, and this is what truly distinguishes it as a source for gaining an understanding of what was a vibrant and successful...

National History Museum of Latvia
#26 of 75 Museums in Riga
60+ varied museums (including the unexpected such as the Museum of Porcelain) have come together for it so it's a very comprehensive view of Latvian history and life.
Often more recent history is skipped over, but with WW 2 and the events of the past 25 years or so relating to Latvia regaining its independence from Russia so compelling, it is pleasing to see this museum laying...

This museum is located in old Riga, in 3 floors of 17th century house, where it shows a story of events that took place roughly from 1988 till 1991 when Latvia got its freedom of Soviet Union
This museum ties in very well with the occupation museum.
