In an accessible location, this large, well-serviced, well-displayed museum has something for everyone, but probably much that leaves any one individual cold. Its cafe is unfortunately more of a restaurant

Quite a large museum with different art collections. Even the basement and attic are utilised and I recommend taking the lift all the way up and walk on the terrace to enjoy lovely views over the city. My favourite temporary exhibition was Minervaldis Polis: Illusion as a Reality, a wonderful exercise in hyperrealism. There's a museum cafe with lovely outside... More

After renovation place got some improvements and additions, as always exciting, but now brushed up and ready for many more art lovers. Check on regular basis for art exhibitions see the impressive Rozentals works on top floor. Place features nice cafeteria and quite interesting small souvenir and book store.

Since they did the renovation it seems that it's hugely popular - we visited on a Sunday morning and it was full with visitors already so we had to wait in a long line. Because I don't really know a lot about art I enjoyed the architecture more than the paintings and sculptures but still - everything was amazing!

The museum is located in a nice old building of the beginning of 20th century (I guess) which was nicely renovated a few years ago. It gives a very good idea how latvian painting tradition developed in last two centuries, parallels with european art of the same period. Many artists are really of international quality. The only pity is that... More

A must for Architects - both the new part on the bottom and the top. Like a cross between a gallery and a museum, with separate artists exhibits top and bottom with the permanent, historical exhibit in the middle. Modern, progressive art in the context of its history.

This can take a few hours to see everything. The paintings are worth seeing and the building is interesting.
