  • So sad this place was destroyed during war. But they have rebuilt it for the 800th birthday of Riga as a gift to the people. Worth a visit. Only 3€ if you are a student

  • Truly magnificent. Considering it was raised to the ground true nazi vandalism in wwII. All credit to Latvia and The people of Riga for restoring this lovely building so lovingly. It is a statement of national identity. To miss it on a visit to Riga is to miss a part of Riga. A must see

  • Pretty cool exhibition in relation to the Brotherhood of Blackheads and the House of them. The restoration is fantastic given it was rebuilt in the 90's. Worth the trip!

  • Beautiful building. But the outside is better than the inside. Lack of information about what actually happens inside.

  • My 9 year old daughter's favorite part of our trip to Riga. Gorgeous exhibits, interesting facts, and a good ticket price for the family.
