“When entering the tiny Latvia of the former times that hides unobtrusively behind the pine forest at Lake Jugla, don’t strive to perceive it as a reality for it was a reality only to those from long ago. But the objects, structures, and households still continue to exist. You, a visitor and a stranger, will be rewarded with the intimacy of these treasures of our predecessors. This feeling, without any reminiscence of contemporary man, may be vague, imperfect or too subjective though nursed by many and winnowed by time.”

“The Art Museum RIGA BOURSE is an architectural monument of national importance. It was built between 1852 and 1855 in the style of a Venetian renaissance palazzo symbolising wealth and plenitude. The design was by the St. Petersburg architect of German origin Harald Julius Bosse (1812-1894) and for the first time in its history, all the rooms are open to the public.”

“The Museum of the History of Riga and Navigation is the oldest in Latvia and the whole of the Baltics, and one of the oldest in Europe. The Museum is situated in Old Riga, in a remarkable architectural monument of the 13th–20th centuries – the ensemble of the Riga Dom. The history of the Museum dates back to the 18th century. The rich and diverse collections of the Museum originated from an art and natural sciences collection of Nikolaus von Himsel (1729–1764), a Riga doctor. Upon his death, his mother Catherina von Himsel carried out his wish to have his collection handed over to the city of Riga. On 22February 1773, the Riga Town Council founded a museum, named it after Himsel and allocated to it the premises of the so-called Anatomical Theatre at Kalēju Street 34/36 (the building has not survived). In 1791, the Himsel Museum was moved to the east wing of the Dom ensemble, which had been rebuilt to accommodate the city library and the museum. An evidence of this is the image of an astrolabe and the inscription “Museum” on the pediment of the building. In 1816, a special Arts Cabinet was opened, while in 1881 the merging the collections of the Himsel Museum and the City numismatic collection formed the City Coin Cabinet. The development of the Museum is closely connected with the activities of the Society for the Research of History and Antiquity in Russia’s Baltic Provinces (founded in 1834), the Society of Naturalists (1845), the Literary Practical Civic Society (1802) and the Riga Society of Practising Physicians (1822). The collections of the above societies were exhibited in the so-called Riga Museum (1858) at Šķūņu Street 11. In the 1860s the collections of natural sciences and archaeology from the Himsel Museum were turned over to the Riga Museum, but some of the collections went to the newly founded City Art Gallery. ”

“The Art Museum Riga Bourse is located in the historical centre of Riga and represents a new type of museums; the museum was opened in 2011. The museum offers to experience interrelation between East and West, as well as a dialogue between the classics and modernity. An important aspect of the new museum is harmony between the acquisition of knowledge and recreation, as well as the breaking down of barriers between various forms of culture. The Museum is located in the Riga Bourse building that is an architectural monument of national importance. The building was constructed from 1852 to 1855 following Venetian Renaissance palazzo forms that symbolise wealth and abundance. The building was designed by an architect from St. Petersburg of German origin Harald Julius von Bosse (1812-1894). After its successful reconstruction the Art Museum Riga Bourse on its six floors now houses modern exhibition halls, various expositions, the "Small School" for children, seminar and conference rooms, museum souvenir and art catalogue shop, as well as a café. Among other novelties, special relaxation areas and application of modern technologies, including audio guides for local and foreign guests must be mentioned. ”
