  • Very cheap, only a few Euros. The inside of the building itself is stunning. The history of Latvian art is fantastic to see, as there is not much in western art galleries. Highly recommended to spend ...  more »
  • It seems that the museum has been refurbished recently, compared to my last visit almost 10 years ago. Very good selcton of Latvian artists. Staff are helpful and happy to give information if asked.  more »

  • This "museum" allowed itself to be rented out by Audi. I arrived to find out that every single floor of THE Latvian National Museum of Art had been rented out and that the museum was closed for the entire day. Oh, but I could still pay 3.50 euros to visit the special 1 floor exhibition in the basement! Only a little more than half the price of actual admission to the entire Museum (what a steal!) I fail to see why a national museum of Art full of national treasures for the purpose of being viewed by the public has allowed itself to be turned into some sort of low class banquet hall for a rich corporation to taste wine. Aren't there actual banquet halls for this purpose? Shame on the museum for this and shame on them for still charging admission to the exhibition downstairs. Absolutely uncouth, unbecoming and disgusting. Let banquet halls and hotels host events, let museums be museums!
  • The first building in the Baltic countries that was built for the needs of Art Museum. The building has been nicely restored and now has a huge extension underground. It houses Latvian paintings. A must to be visited in Riga.
  • Tiny area for the old good artwork. Most of it is new 'artwork', which is basically junk from any markets in most cities or garbage like a hanging german sausage! What the!!!! How is this art! Gave it 1 star for good clean toilets! Wasted €6!
  • True pice of art. Realy beautiful and modern it's almost a small louvre. The interior is part of story! If you live or if you visit Latvia then MUST SEE!
  • The biggest art museum in the city, it houses over 52,000 works of art, it is one of the most impressive historical buildings on the boulevard and is situated next to the Academy of Art.
