One of the best non-general museum I have ever been. Great setup, amazing car collections and couple of them are the only in the world. Although lot of contents but not overwhelming. Several fun gimmicks are perfect for family, the staff is also very available and friendly. Must see!
If you like cars, you must visit this museum! Unfortunately I didn't take many pictures and only stayed for about 1.5 hours, but I think I could have stayed for 3 for 4 hours easily! There are a wide range of vehicles to look at; vintage cars, race cars, motorcycles, and even bicycles! I also enjoyed the vintage radio exhibit showcasing radios made in Riga. My favorite were the Soviet cars since I do not have many chances to see them where I come from. I went on a tour with an English-speaking guide. His English was very good, and he spent just the right amount of time on each piece and gave interesting facts about them. The facility is spectacular! I have also been to the Ferrari factory museum and I would put this facility on par with the Ferrari museum. The building is nice, the vehicles are interesting, the gift shop has nice models, and the cafe has good food at reasonable prices. The best part is, you can have lunch outside while watching cars on the adjacent race track! I will definitely come back by myself and spend several hours taking pictures of the cars and hopefully spend some time on the track as well. I can't think of a better day for a motorhead! TIP: Don't forget to go downstairs to the bottom floor! This is where the bicycles are and several vintage cars made in Riga. The guide said many guests aren't aware that there is a whole other floor to visit!
Very interesting museum, I liked it very much. Each exhibit has its own history written on the wall. There are also interactive entertainments where you can take a picture of yourself in a car and send it to your email address. And also it's important to mention that all the cars were delicate
Very modern and interesting museum. It's full of cars, 99% of them is nicely painted and there is no rust neither dust on them. Very unique exhibition and experience. Visiting this museum you will see full history of cars, from the invention of wheel, through cars in Soviet Union to replica of Audi, which broke world record of speed.
Great place if you like cars! Some very unique and rare cars there! There are also some motorbikes and bicycles. Museum is not that big, but worth a visit! Very nice staff can tell you interesting facts and stories. All the cars in museum except for 2 are in full working order! Tickets are not expensive (you can check prices in their web site). Nice little gift shop upon exit. There is also a racing circuit next to the museum.
