This museum is very stylish and so well renovated that it is a piece of art itself. The rooms are spacious and it is easy to walk through the exhibitions. The paintings and Latvian art are suprisingly familiar to Finnish corresponding.

the building itself is spectacular from the amazing entry and staircase to the 2 rooftop terraces. In between an interesting range of Latvian art from early days of "Latvian" history, it's first independence in 1918 the Iron Curtain era and post 1991 independence.

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
