  • The building of the Latvian National Museum of art is a piece outside Riga's historic old town in the northeastern part of the Esplanade next to the Art Academy. By the freedom monument out is to walk in about six minutes here. The building was designed in 1905 by architect Wilhelm Neumann. It houses one of the most important collections of Latvian art with more than 52,000 works from the mid-18th century until today. For us, the wonderful building was the highlight. The exhibited works are probably more interesting for connoisseurs and lovers, but the building is really awesome. Already sure worth a visit.

  • The Latvian National Museum of art holds the largest collection of works of art in the country. Art Museum recently opened after reconstruction. It presents a collection of foreign art. The ticket costs 6 euros.

  • An exhibition that makes you smile, question and wonder ... how long does it take to think up a ‘Flower in a vase’ and put it on the floor? Sorry, but we accidentally kicked this over as we didn’t see...  more »

  • Good value. Interesting as almost all the artists are probably unknown outside of Latvia. They shouldn't be.
  • Very interesting collection of war-time art and soviet era art. A must if you want to get a in-depth view of Latvia's history.
  • One of the better art museums in Northern Europe, the building itself is a architectural masterpiece with the underground section and rooftop views. Great and diverse exhibition of Latvian art, many different genres and enough to keep you busy for hours.
  • The building inside was very nice and permanent exhibition spans four floors so it's well worth the three euros fee.
  • It is worth a few hours while in Riga. A pleasant surprise for art lovers and not only.

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.
