The best part of the exposition, in my opinion, are the paintings of Līvija Endzelīna and Maija Tabaka. But the exposition is generally downgraded by cleaning out artworks of not ethnic Latvians, mostly Russians. Now a part of these non Latvian artworks are locked in...More

Very cheap, only a few Euros. The inside of the building itself is stunning. The history of Latvian art is fantastic to see, as there is not much in western art galleries. Highly recommended to spend a couple of hours here.

Wonderful museum. Entrance was around 3-4 euros and that gave me access to the permanent installments (two floors) and a small third floor. You can also pay double and get access to the downstairs exhibitions. With only permanent installments access, I still spent two and...More
