Art Museum RIGA BOURSE, Riga

3.9
#11 of 63 in Museums in Latvia
Art Museum Museum
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.

  • There are three sections dedicated to Asian art, European art and temporary exhibitions (none when I was there). The first one is the most interesting, with statues and other items from the Far East, ...  more »
  • It is a pity that two large terraces located in the square of access hinders the overview: Museum, Cathedral and surroundings. Anyway it should be.

  • Was here and looked at old paintings of old masters and it was lovely just unbelievable what they could paint the good old days of painting. one of the paintings was a large curtain in the background to paint a large tarp with so many different shades and hues must have taken years. A painting with a pink bow that looked three-dimensional out completely wonderful Yes there were many fine paintings to enjoy. and the building was very interesting in itself.

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.
