This motor museum is a bus or taxi ride out of Riga in the urban area but well worth the visit. The collection of cars , bikes and other vehicles is amazing and don't miss the interactive exhibitions :) - plenty of activities for children too

Here was some very nice cars. Also rare ones which you cant see in many places, like Benz, award winning Krastin. There was also nice department for Soviet Union cars like Tsaika, Zil. After renovation did look very nice. We did visit here By bus but also can visit By car. There is free parking places beside museum.

Had a really good time in the museum even though I don't really care much about cars. It has a nice collection of cars and motorcycles(with cool trivia about them). Also from the terrace you can see part of the race track. If you're lucky there will be a race going on.

Lots of cars, nice positioning, a great place for car lovers. Yet, a very boring cafeteria, so for a snack you better look somewhere else. Kids will like it!

Had a good time in this museum. Interesting history and stories about vintage cars. My grandfather had Volga when I was a little girl so it was a nice memory to see that car again.
