Loved it! The entry fee (for all the exhibitions) was only 6€!! They also had an app you could download for an audio guide, they had it well done and I really enjoyed listening to it! I liked all the exhibitions, from contemporary art to classical and some sculptures. They even had a terrace on the top floor with a nice view on the city!
We very much enjoyed this museum. One wing was closed for renovation, but what we saw was excellent. We appreciated the opportunity to learn about the history of Latvian art and artists. There are descriptions in English and the museum itself was beautiful! Will return when back in Riga.
