  • Central location of the museum ( Old town) makes it a very approachable place. It’s not very big but all the exhibitions are very interesting and let you understand the evolution of the decorative art in Latvia. The museum is perfectly designed and decorated. Ticket price is reasonable.
  • Stretching over 3 floors, the museum features an eclectic collection of items dating from 1970 to today, may it be furniture, decorative items, porcelain, wall rugs or abstract art. Each item is described, Latvian & English, on a leaflet hanging next to it. Cashier and Attendants on each floor could be more welcoming and hospitable, acting as Ambassadors of Latvian design. There are clean restroom facilities on the first floor. The museum is a good option on a rainy or cold day. Otherwise, it is not worth a detour.
