Art Museum RIGA BOURSE, Riga

(3.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Located opposite of St. Mary's Dome Cathedral, you surely wont miss it if you are within the neighborhood. 
  • The Museum is located near the Duomo, in the square, by the way, next to a great Museum of the history of Riga and navigation. The Bourse itself is quite interesting. It sometimes different exhibitions, and we hit on permanent display on the 3 and 4 floors. We started with the 4-th floor, which houses paintings (portraits, landscapes, genre scenes), sculpture, porcelain and silver European masters-all presented in a magnificent room with high ceilings and luxurious chandeliers. The third floor is devoted to exhibits of India, Japan, China. There are Egyptian mummies. This exhibit is not large. On the ground floor of the Museum, where a small wardrobe exhibit devoted to the restoration of the Museum and souvenir shop. If you are interested in art museums can be visited.
