  • The museum is entirely dedicated to Latvian artists so you're not likely to know any of them. It's not a bad thing per se but if you're not an art lover you might be disappointed. The paintings from a...  more »
  • It's partially closed and so only 3 euros to see a history of Latvian art . A nicely renovated building a nice staircase . It has some great artwork . Modern stuff and older . Well worth a visit  more »
  • To be honest: I have not much idea of Latvian art. I was surprised when I entered in the beautiful building of the National Museum. Especially the newer works have it done to me - both the socialist realism as the modern Latvian art are represented here, and there are some impressive stands pieces really. I'm not a connoisseur, but I really liked. Overall, the Museum in good memories will remain me. Also the basement is well worth a visit - not works on a pretty spectacular way be stored namely. All in all is here highly recommended a visit.

  • So much to see. and great piece of architecture. look above your head or under your feet....
  • Not the most inspiring exhibition I've been to. The distribution of paintings seemed a bit random. Also the temporary exhibition was only in Latvian.
  • Beautiful building which was very recently renovated, with a interesting permanent exhibition of national art and traveling exhibitions
  • A nice 1920s-1940s collectoon, great view from the roof terrace
  • Amazing Latvian painters exhibition. Amazing building. If you are into fine arts it's a must to visit.

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.
