House Of Blackheads Reviews & Ratings
The dancing hall on the 1st floor is beautiful and the playing musics are quite good. There's also a mediaval cellar with an exhibition about the order. But that's all. It costs 6 €, which I think it's a little too much.
Even though it's been completely rebuilt, this place still makes an excellent photo background, or just a place to hangout. The inside is full of interesting history and neat exhibits. The fee is small, and it doesn't take long to tour the entire building, so I'd encourage people to stop in after posing for a picture on the outside.
Lots of history and good to look around, interesting things on every inch. It is beautiful at night all lit up too.
Nice place to visit in the old Riga town. A lot of really good places for take pictures or selfies.
This was a splendid attraction which we spent a good hour in. Lots of lovely things to see and a lot of information given. The ballroom was spectacular. Lovely enthusiastic staff. Clean modern toilets. Definitely worth a visit
