There are materials here *but not on display.* Apparently you have to make special arrangements to get access. What you can see is a small room with changing exhibits. In September 2016 the current one was imaginary flags to represent the refugees and immigrants around the world, particularly those traveling over water. Very poignant.

It is not a real museum, just a place for some administration. So, they don't let you examine all the building: it's just possible to see the ground floor and the backyard. But still it's interesting and worth coming in though it won't take you more than 10 minutes.

The building is old and amazing, but the muzeum inside is bad. It's almost nothing. One room for contemporary exhibition and thats all. You can see the other things on the internet. So don't come here, almost nothing there.

It's free and that's totally justified. Located in an old house which has no greater interest than any of its neighbors, the so-called museum offers a single, not large, exhibition room containing a few plans of urban-planning from the Soviet era without any explanation. A waste of time in a city that has plenty to offer to architecture buffs.

Stumbled across the Latvian Museum of Architecture by accident. The date on the front of the cream-painted building is 1646 and apart from that there was nothing to draw us inside - no sign as far as I could see - but curiosity tempted us to push open the door. The custodian indicated she was about to close but she... More
