You'll see Latvian vehicles, collections from Russia, and imported automobiles from the United States and Europe, some over a century old. Check out saved scrap vehicles and encounter some oddly shaped antiques that look nothing like the automobiles of today.

  • Numerous discoveries from history of motorcars and motor bikes, rarities and things to remember from the childhood when toy cars were like natural ones.  more »
  • Just a wonderful car museum! We were in Stuttgart, in the Mercedes Museum, so the Riga Museum is no worse! Just less! Be sure to go, if even a little interested in cars, and just need to go to those who are interested in old Soviet cars (there is something to see!), and races - next to the museum track, which are real races! The museum is replete with interactive exhibits that can be twisted and twirled and interacted with them. There are really cool notions. On the ground floor there is a wonderful cafe, with a very tasty kitchen and democratic prices. For people with limited mobility in the museum free of charge give a wheelchair. I definitely recommend to visit both adults and children!

  • Amazing place, spend 5 hours there. My 6year old did not want to leave the place. Great cafeteria with delicious food and very reasonable prices.
  • See a lot of old cars, from some of the very first, to some exhibits of more modern machines. There are cars from the roaring twenties as well as cars from the height of the Soviet Union, including such as belonged to the likes of Stalin, Krushchev and Brezhnev. Well organized and beautifully designed with English and Latvian exhibits and more. And knowledgeable tour guides if you are in to that.
