The grand, palace-like building of Latvian National art museum is one of last Ecclecticism buildings in Riga (built in 1905, designed by the German architect Wilhelm Neumann) and the first in Baltic states which was built for the purpose of museum. In 2014, it got a total renovation as well as underground expansion.

It houses more than 52,000 works of art reflecting the development of professional art in the Baltic area and in Latvia from the middle of the 18th century up until the present time. It also features Russian art from the 16th to the first half of the 20th century.
