The idea to build a museum displaying a wide range of cars from across time was born within the Latvian Antique Automobile club in the eighties. By 1989 the idea became reality as the museum opened its doors for the first time.
In 1992 the museum was nationalised and is now one of the city's most popular venues. The largest museum of its kind in the Baltic states, it is one of the best in Europe with a collection comprising over 200 cars.
The collection is vast and is broadly split by car type. The various stands vary from a set of historic sport motorbikes to military vehicles, racing cars and a large selection of early 20th century examples.
One great thing about this museum is that history is embraced and a large number of Latvian and Soviet cars of the 20th century are on show which you will rarely see in any other such museum anywhere else in the world. You will certainly learn that the eastern block car range includes a lot more than the Lada although plenty of these are also present.
