Latvian National Museum Of Art reviews
Great museum! Quiet and with great exhibition! Some part of exhibitions were close, so the restaurant. And the shop was a bit small… that’s a shame. But free lockers and very lovely building!

Great place, nice and quiet. You can really enjoy this place if you are a art lover. Has 5 floors,all accessible by elevator if you don't want to climb the stairs. Even possible to have some nice view on Riga from the rooftop terrace. All overall recommended place to visit in Riga and is super cheap, entrance for adult is only 3 euros.
This was a really great visit. Sadly the 4th floor was closed when I was there. There are different types of paintings from the like 1800-2000 so it is really interesting to see the change of art. The staff is very friendly and they are not following every step as in some other museum. They speak a solid basic English and the whole museum is translated into English text as well. Highly recommended!
