The building was incredibly gorgeous and breathtaking. The exhibition ranged from classical to modern Latvian art. It was wonderful that the museum offered an app that you could use as a tour guide-very interactive experience.

This is an easy-to-see collection, spanning several centuries of Latvian art over two floors. My personal favourites were the atmospheric 19th c. scenes and the early 20th c. experiments--but there were both earlier periods and contemporary artists represented.
