You  can become convinced of this after visiting museums such as the Latvian National Museum of Art, the Museum of the History of Riga and Navigation, the Rundāle Palace Museum, the Āraiši Archeological Museum Park, the Daugava Museum and others.

One can see interesting collections of applied art at regional studios and art museums in exhibitions of textiles, ceramics, decorative glass, leather, wood, metal and design.
