As adults who love visiting different kind of museums around the world at any cost, entrance fee (10Eur) was more than acceptable for us and we really enjoyed all of the expositions and interactive way of how muse...
This is quite a small but defiantly one of the best motor museums I have been to and I have been to a few including Porsche, Mercedes and VW at Wolfsburg.

This is one of the few memorials/museums dedicated to a righteous gentile who saved Jews from the hands of the evil Nazis in WW II.
This remarkable museum commemorates the amazing tale of how Zanis and his wife Johanna, 'ordinary folk', saved dozens of Jews under the noses of the Nazis in wartime Riga.

I've been to ethnographic museums in Finland & in Takayama, Japan but this is definitely my favourite as it has over 120 incredible wooden buildings that make you feel like you've stepped back in time.
Museum established at 1924th and reflect traditions of European open air museums.

Just simply one of the more beautiful museums I have visited with a variety of exhibits covering a range of style that deal with the Latvian history.
This museum has an art collection of all kind of paintings and drawings that you can follow the history of painting in Latvia with its great artists.

One can visit churches & museums in almost any city.
Unlike similar museums in the old East Germany, this place hasn't been spruced up for tourists.

like all the Ghettos and Holcaust Museums this too has an eerie feeling, you can feel the sadness but also the determination and solidarity of the resistance movement in Latvia.
Two excellent Jewish Museums

One of the great art nouveau museums of Europe.
This little museum does a fantastic job of capturing what it was like to live in an Art Nouveau space at the time, in a house of that time which you reach ideally on foot via streets which erupt with sphinx or owl...

Didnt realize the fear and anxiety facing the people of the Baltic States until we saw this museum as well as the KGB museums throughout the Baltic States
Of all similar museums I saw, this one is second best, after Berlin Wall on Berbauer strasse in Berlin.

The collection of the museum cannot be compared to the great museums in western Europe but it will certainly keep you occupied for 1 or 2 hours.
In five years Art Museum Riga Bourse became as one of the most attended museums in Riga, with more than 100 000 attenders annually.

During our short stay we only managed to visit 5-6 museums, but this one was pretty much the king of the lot.

One of the best boutique museums in Riga!
The museum has obviously been well thought out with some fascinating snippets of information dotted around the displays, which really convey the passion the founder and museum staff have over their collection.

The museum is one of the most comprehensive Jewish museums that we have seen.
We highly recommend Ieva Kalceva for a guided tour of "Jewish Riga" that included the forest, the museum, and the Jewish quarter.

Small exhibit as far as museums go, but fabulous eye candy and definitely worth a visit.
Crinolines and bustles to try on was an additional fun!!! Anna - our guide through yesteryear fashion - enhanced the experience at the museum tenfold!

The guide and museum owner gather this collection together personally, he is the pilot and aviation enthusiast.

Best from museums, the most unusual from escape rooms!
The place managed to make an incredible escape the room game - while still being a museum of medieval Riga.

This is a small private museum, easy to miss, but in the middle of the old town of Riga.

Done up with a lot of love and attention to detail, exceptionally friendly staff, interactive displays and much chocolate to try out :-) A nice museum to explore with and without kids!
... some delicious Laima chocolate, saw the whole process of chocolate making and mass production, made some cute photos and even shot a few funny videos (all the technologies for that are available at the museum).
#29 of 72 Museums in Riga
This old fashioned museum had way more information than I could take in - lots and lots of information.

... of words has been made clear and interesting.Incidentally the museum is on 3 floors,and to get to the upper floors your have to walk up some extremely steep stairs.Certainly one of the best small museums in Riga.
I stumbled upon this gem of a museum accidentally, but wow, is it worth a visit!
