“A lovely museum”

Latvian Museum of Photography
Ranked #106 of 292 things to do in Riga
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 February 2014

A really interesting museum that was highly enjoyable. The staff were really helpful, perhaps a little too helpful, as you'd be reading one thing and then she'd interrupt and try to show you or tell you something else!

The rooms the exhibits are in are beautiful too, lovely floors and ceilings!

Entrance fee for 2 adults and the right to take photos was just under 10 Euros.

As a person who loves photography and classic film cameras, I had to visit a photography museum in the city where Minox was born. After a few wrong turns, several glances at our map, and then consulting with the cashier of a boutique, we found it. Unassuming from the outside, it is only marked by a simple sign, and seems like you are entering someone's abode. Up the stairs you are greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Even with the language barrier, our "tour guide" was able to explain and show us some very unique collections. This included a 10 minute video on Minox and its founder, Walter Zapp. Above the museum is an art gallery for photographers. Overall, a good hour and a half well spent.
