Riga Motor Museum was opened after a large-scale reconstruction on the 2nd of July, 2016. The museum has gained broader and modernized exposition space, a comfortable and enjoyable environment for visitors, as well as accessibility for everyone. At the same time we have preserved the museum’s historical architecture and the specific Motor Museum’s atmosphere. The author of the reconstruction project is “Projektēšanas birojs ARHIS” Ltd.
