Some interesting art but the staff seem to do random ticket checks as you go around the gallery so if you lose your ticket it's off to the exit.

Surprisingly good art in a beautiful building along a nice park.Very interesting collection of 20th century works, practically unknown to most I would say, but well worth a visit.

This a beautifully renovated building with some nice features like a grand staircase and windows exposing a state of the art climate controlled storage room, but the artwork was largely limited to paintings and the overall tone was in the dour "life is a funeral procession then you die" vein. I left when I got to the room where a... More

This was an excellent gallery and we had the added bonus of a Rosenthal exhibition downstairs. It was a bit of a pain getting in as the queues were very long on a Sunday morning as it is free to Latvians. We had planned to visit on Saturday but when we arrived on Saturday we were told the gallery was... More

My sister and I picked an early morning (around 10:00am) visit to the Latvian Museum Of Art during our recent visit to Riga. The building itself is a work of art! All exhibits are arranged beautifully and in an easy to follow manner. We visited on a Thursday morning and saw many young children as school groups were visiting the... More

Riga has a beautiful centrally located art museum with the best in Latvian art. The admission price is reasonable. It gives you a glimpse into the complexity of Latvia.

There may not be a lot of pictures on display (only about 90-120 minutes to wander through), but there are some cracking paintings well displayed and lit. Plus you can go up to the roof for an excellent view over the city and park.

Reasonably priced at €6 for the combined ticket which means you can view all 5 of the floors which took us about 1.5hours to look around.

Well set out galleries of local art, some of very good quality. Do not expect to see any wider European art or anything by anyone you've ever heard of. The galleries and central exhibition hall are worth seeing for themselves. Interesting.
