The Art Museum RIGA BOURSE is one of the five structures of the Latvian National Museum of Art, bringing together the collections of foreign art accumulated in Riga from the 18th to the early 20th century.

The art-historical periods encompassed by the collections of the AMRB range from Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece to Western European art of the 1930s, with large collections of 16th- to early 20th-century Western European painting and graphic arts, 18th- to early 20th-century decorative applied arts and 16th- to 20th-century Asian art.

Located in the Old Town of Riga, the Art Museum RIGA BOURSE has been open to the public in its new premises since 2011. This first Latvian addition to the Director’s Choice series showcases a selection of the museum’s greatest treasures chosen by Director Daiga Upeniece.
