The main temporary exhibitions are displayed in the oldest (former) church in Riga and you can definitely feel its incredible atmosphere. Plus they are usually of excellent quality! The art-nouveau fashion is one of the biggest ones but will be terminated by the end of October 2012. If you are lucky, there might be another temporary exhibition on the stairs and second and third floor halls (usually ceramics, porcelain, glass etc.).
The permanent displays will teach you a lot about Latvian design and applied arts mostly during in between wars period when the country experienced its hey-days in many aspects. You can see pieces awarded et the World Expo in Paris, fine jewellery, tapestries (Latvia is renowned for those), furniture and more.
