Latvian Museum of Architecture
The Latvian Museum of Architecture is located in one of the three oldest buildings in Riga, also known by locals as the Three Brothers. The museum is a research and exhibition centre, promoting Latvia’s architectural heritage.
The Museum of Architecture Fund has over 11,000 units. Even though the museum does not have a permanent exposition, its collection is completely digitized and available to the public. The museum possesses many original blueprints, drawings, designs, drafts - as well as their copies. By organizing exhibitions and issuing publications, the museum gives the public an idea about the development of contemporary architecture and promotes understanding of the role of Latvian architectural heritage in world culture.
