  • It is worth visiting the museum, but I can't think of the museum as one of the best in Riga. I wasn't impressed. The direction of the museum of historical character, which will allow you to plunge into the history of photography. I recommend to those who have rarely been to the museums of photography. Good staff)).

  • This small museum is certainly worth a visit. The history is interesting, in English and Latvian, and they have a number of amazing pieces.
  • Interesting journey in the Latvian history of photography. Included a modern day exhibition about water. We found it very interesting. Also intriguing photos from a fire in one of the cities church and clocktower spires in black and white. I would recommend a visit. The museum shop also have good books from a number of highly skilled Latvian photographers.
