Owner description: The Europe’s only museum dedicated to the Sun is in Riga!There are no two similar nations or cultures in this world. However, the Sun is equally significant in many cultures around the globe, and people depict it in many different ways. We welcome you to the Museum of the Sun to see for yourself the diversity of ways how humans see the Sun!

“Lovely idea, but a bit chaotically developed”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

The best thing is that you do feel the sun everywhere around you as soon as you step in. The colours are perfect, the shapes are various, the suns are numerous, but it's really hard to capture any single object with your eye.

Still this is a pleasant place, and it can lift your spirits.

“Tiny place -more shop than museum”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Friendly service, just don't expect too much. You would not spend much time there but you can buy cool souvenirs there.

“Sun museum”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

This was a brilliant morning out. as the displays were not in english our guide took us round and explained all about the exhibition, which was basically suns from all over the world. At the end we were able to paint our own sun to bring home, all this for L2.50, about £3, excellent!!!
