Art Museum RIGA BOURSE, Riga

3.9
#11 of 103 in Museums in Latvia
Combining the art of East and West--classical and contemporary--Art Museum RIGA BOURSE attempts to demonstrate that excellence wins out over origin. Located in a 19th-century Venetian Renaissance-style building, the museum hosts four galleries on six floors. Walk through rooms filled with Western European paintings, porcelain, and sculptures from the 16th to 20th centuries. Masks, clothes, and precious ornaments reveal the culture of the Middle East and the Far East. Look for Dmitry Gutov's Gondola--a three-dimensional airborne explosion of a real 11 m (36 ft) gondola, which seems to have been frozen in time.

  • I'm not sure the museum warrants its price of admission, but I enjoyed their porcelain collection (part of the permanent exhibit).  more »

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
