  • Really good museum about the history of Latvia from the first humans to 1990's. Wall/stand texts are only in Latvian and Russian, but there are booklets and guidebooks in english which are very good. ...  more »
  • Really liked the Museum, located next to the residence of the President of Latvia. Unfortunately, it was a very long time, and could not take photographs (shot on film camera)

  • Beautiful building and interesting but the staff in general are so rude in their attitude. They need a lesson on how to interact with tourists interested in their culture.  more »

  • I was a bit bored by the early history but period from RUSSIAN occupation onwards was fascinating. Nice mock up of a Soviet style flat
  • Interesting Latvian artifacts but I've seen better museums in villages.
  • Nice museum. Many great pieces, but would have loved to see more than mainly paintings in a National museum of Art. Staff could positively smile more too.
  • Well equipped museum of Latvian history. For many of Latvian friends it was surprise that this exists but it has a lot of amount of information and old items for show. Workers on each floor follow you like a hawk from distance which I found funny.
  • Nice place with a nice expo about Latvian people
