Modern and well laid out exhibition. You can get as much as you like out of it: just check out the nice cars or go into details. It's great for children and adults, there's really something for everyone. Highly recommended and well worth the cost of admission.

I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t expecting it to be half as good as it was. Lots to see and many interactive stations for inquiring minds. You can easily spend a couple of hours there. The cafe was good and had a decent choice of food too. I’d go back for sure

Very organized and cosy place. It is worth to spend an afternoon in the museum and discovering these old beauties. A wide section is dedicated to the cars during the Soviet times. I liked how society and the automotive industry are put in the same scene. This helps to understand an important period of our history.

One of the best museums hands down!I highly recommend taking your kids there (from 3 yrs up). The exhibit is really worth every penny!Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

There are some interesting cars there but very little information next to these in most cases. Most just have car name, kw, year , top speed and country which it was made. It also has engine configuration but as hoods are closed you can't see engine itself. Some cars are exhibitioned so that you can't even walk around these or look inside. Overall bit more interesting than looking at car pictures but not much.

For fans of retro cars this is a paradise. I visited this morning and i was bliwn away from the collection of retro mobiles in great shape. I made many pics as it was very interesting. Reccomend it to all car lovers.

Simply astonishing museum. I have no interest in cars, and yet I was entertained. Very engaging museum with great displays and splendid guidance.

Absolutely excellent place. Spent here approx. 2 hours and could stay here for another couple of hours. Historical cars, sports cars, bikes.

Great place if you like cars! Some very unique and rare cars there! There are also some motorbikes and bicycles. Museum is not that big, but worth a visit! Very nice staff can tell you interesting facts and stories. All the cars in museum except for 2 are in full working order! Tickets are not expensive (you can check prices in their web site). Nice little gift shop upon exit. There is also a racing circuit next to the museum.

Brilliant museum - beautiful, educational, entertaining. Exposition was on three floors, divided by time period. It was really interesting for grown ups while a two-year-old loved it to bits and kept on commenting on how many, many, many cars there were. :D Wish we could've had a bit more time, as a bit over an hour of toddler's patience was not nearly enough for us, if we'd wanted to properly read all the available information. A locker room available for coats and bags, as well as a souvenir shop (mostly t-shirts and model cars). A small children's area is located outside the exhibition, as well as a restaurant. Overall, although a bit pricey (10e/ person on April 2018; the toddler went for free), this museum is definitely worth visiting and revisiting.

We visited when in Riga in February, although a fair way out of town on a bus ride it was well worth the visit. I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits, this starts with the origins of motoring with displays of cars from the beginning right up to the cars of the Soviet era. the museum also has a large display of motorbikes from Europe again some early ones from the 30's 40s and 50's as well as telephones and bicycles. I really enjoyed the museum and would go again if ever back in Riga

Very intriguing and organised museum, with rare car models that are quite fascinating to read about. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in cars and the development of transportation throughout the years. It is also quite fascinating for younger children, especially if they are interested in cars. My four year old cousin survived over 1.5 hours in the museum without complaining, he loved it as much as I did.

Very rare car models. Nice museum. 10 euros entrance fee. There is a bus stop in front of the building and is easy to be found. Have a lot of interesting and interactive things. It can be veyr entertaining even for women

Spent an hour at the museum. Some interesting exhibits. Car enthusiasts would probably be able to spend more time. For me the hour was sufficient. Finding the bus stop for bus 5 in the centre of Riga was a bit of a challenge. Would have been easier to get it from central station. About a 30 min bus ride.

A 30min bus ride out of the centre of Riga, but well worth the trip. 3 floors of a range of vehicles and a good display of the introduction to the history of the automobile. There are a few interactive models to play with and a decent coffee shop. A must visit if in Riga and you're a petrolhead.
