Sammelschwerpunkte/Main collections
The Natural History Museum of Latvia is the oldest complex collection of natural riches in the Baltic States. The museum gathers and maintains collections of natural specimens from Latvia and the world, does scientific research on the collections and popularizes them in permanent and temporary exhibits and other display activities. The museum takes advantage of its collection in its environmental education work. It participates in environmental research and protection and gathers extensive new materials and information about the diversity of nature in Latvia and the world.

The Natural History Museum of Latvia is a storehouse containing geological, entomological, palaeontological, zoological, botanical and anthropological objects. The collection consists of a total of 188 211 specimens (01.01.2005).
The Riga Naturalist Society (1845-1939) left a valuable legacy in the form of a sizeable collection of objects from Latvia and around the world:

« Stuffed birds ( 2). The T. Lorenz unique collection of aberrations among fowl species; the collection was gathered at the end of the 19th century in Russia;
« The E.F. Stoll collection of birds’ eggs, collected in the early 20th century;
« Stuffed mammal collection;
« Tropical sea shells;
« Fossils, rocks and minerals;
« Herbariums ( 3);
« The H. Carlile butterfly collection, the C. Muethel beetle collection and many more.

Of note are the very diverse naturalist collections from School Museums and the geology and paleontology collections from the Geology Institute.
The Botany Collection consists of more than 31,000 units.
The systematic plant herbarium ( 4) of Latvia is augmented yearly, gradually forming a complete collection. The herbarium of Latvia’s mushrooms has been enlarged and improved every year since 1988 ( 5, 6). The newly formed collection of the mosses of Latvia is noteworthy ( 7). Work has started on the charophyta herbarium. These botanical collections are not meant for exposition but rather for scientific study.
The Geology Collection contains a wide sampling of the sedimentary rock of Latvia. The mineral and rock collections from the Caucasus and the Kola Peninsula are unique; members of the Geology Club helped gather the specimens. The number of units in the Baltic amber ( 8, amber in the text) and agate collections increases regularly. The most valuable recent bequest has been the luminescent minerals collection.
The Palaeontology Collection consists of ancient animal and plant fossils from Latvia and surrounding territories ( 10). Included are 2 billion-year-old algae fossils as well as relatively recent, 10,000 year-old mammoth and other Quaternary period animal bones.
The diverse Devonian period fish fossil collection is very valuable ( 11, 12). Of special significance is the collection of ancient four-legged animal bones found in Kurzeme ( 13) as well as the collection of armored fish ( 14) and lobe-fin fish skeletons, found in the early 1970s at the clay quarry in Lode.
Devonian period fish remains have been gathered near Lake Onega in Russia the last three years (15, 16) and the excavation continues to be highly productive.

The Entomology Collection is highly species diverse consisting of 63,000 units. The largest – Latvian butterfly collection – consists of 2000 species (17). The various beetle collections are unique and colorful: wood gnawers (18), soldier beetles, ground beetles (19, Carabidae from the Crimea), and soldier beetles. A meaningful place has been allocated the ant (20), bark lice and flower fly (21) collections.
The Zoology Collection with its 27,000 units is very interesting and diverse. Almost all of the bird species of Latvia are included in the bird collection. The collection is augmented regularly (22,23,24). Many of the foreign birds and mammals have come to the museum from the Riga Zoo (25). The collection of stuffed birds of the Far East resulted from collaboration with the Magadana Regional Museum (26).

The collection of seashells from Latvia and elsewhere has noticeably improved in recent years. The specimens have been gathered, purchased and received as gifts (27).
In 2000 the museum received a turtle collection (28) as a donation.
Since Latvia is a member nation of the Convention on international trade in endangered wild fauna and flora”, the museum receives confiscated natural objects from the regional customs agencies in Riga and Latgale. Items include corals, shells, stuffed crocodiles, crocodile skin and snake skin articles (29).
Since the museum collection contains many species that are nearly or already extinct in Latvia and the world, its value is increasing and long term maintenance is becoming increasingly important.

"The Latvian Sport Museum is located in a 17th century building once used as a warehouse. Although officially opened in 1990, the origins of the museum are connected with the activities of V. Smidbergs (1893-1975), a collector and sports history enthusiast. His donation now forms the core of the museum's collection. The museum houses a rich collection of materials about Latvian sporting activities abroad as well as in Latvia. In January 2000 the museum began the implementation of the long-term project ‘‘The Hall of Honour’‘. This currently displays an exhibition dedicated to Latvian Olympic champions. ‘‘ (Latvian Museum Association)

The museum has its beginnings in 'Writer's Corner' in the Musuem of Pedagogy, organised by Latvian teachers led by J. Greste. These displays included collecitons of original materials about R. Blaumanis, A. Brigadere, F. Barda, Rainis, Aspazija and composer E. Darzins, thus creating the basis for the collections of the Literature, Theatre and Music Museum.
The Literature, Theatre and Music Museum is a wide profile museum of cultural history, which familiarises the viewer with Latvian liteature, theatre and music as well as particular genres of art. The mission of the museum is to collect, store, study and popularise the spiritual and material wealth of Latvian literary, theatrical and musical heritage from their beginnings to today, in all their diversity.
The Exhibition 'Musical instruments in Latvia' is a tribute to Riga as a once noteworthy city of piano masters. There can be seen not only antique and restored board piano, upright pianos and organ, but also wind instruments and the strings. The visitors can even hear how the mechanical self-playing piano sounds. ‘‘ (Latvian Museum Association)

"The Museum of Decorative Arts and Design collects and exhibits works of Latvian professional decorative applied arts dating from the late 19th century. The Latvian national style was developing at this time, using Latvian ethnography as a basis. The museum boasts the richest collection from the porcelain painting studio, ‘‘Baltars’‘. This illustrates the first steps of Latvian pioneers in the field of modernism. The museum is situated in the former St. George's Church (1204), the oldest surviving stone building in Riga. After the Reformation in the 16th century it was converted into a warehouse. The white dolomite walls and the impressive 17th century wooden framework of the warehouse are still visible in the interior spaces today. ‘‘ (Latvian Museum Association)

Sammelschwerpunkte/Main collections
The Museum of Foreign Art was established in 1920, and its collection has changed over the course of time. The Rîga Castle was initially the home of the National Museum of Art, which exhibited both Latvian and foreign art. The museum belonged to the state. It was only in the latter half of the 1940s that the collections were divided up. Many of the private collections that had been held by the Rîga City Museum of Art (which was established in 1905 and was located at Kr. Valdemâra Street 10A, the present home of the National Museum of Art) were brought to the Museum of Foreign Art. We can say that the history of the museum actually began in 1773, when the highly varied art collection of the physician Nikolauss Himzell (1729-1764) was donated to the city of Rîga.
Today the Museum of Foreign Art contains a few of the objects from that collection.
Over the course of time, other people also donated art to the city. Among them were the Kerkovius dynasty, James Armitsted (1826-1879), Paula von Transe-Rosenek (1853-1928), Reinhold Philipp Schilling (1819-1888), Domenico de Robiani (1793-1889) and others. The city of Rîga also brought art. A major and very valuable collection of paintings was purchased from the Rîga mayor and tradesman Friedrich Wilhelm Brederlo (1779-1862). The collection was made up of no fewer than 201 paintings, mostly form 17th-century Holland and Flandria and from 19th-century Germany. From the former National Museum of Art, meanwhile, the museum received a voluminous collection of Belgian art.

The Museum of Foreign Art is 80 years old, and during the course of its history, it has established the greatest collection of foreign art in all of Latvia. The museum’s collection features art from various eras and various nations, covering a period which begins in the 5th millennium before the birth of Christ and ends at the beginning of the 20th century. The collection includes several basic groups of art – the art of Ancient Egypt, the art of the Far East, and the art of Western Europe. The museum’s collection contains paintings, sculptures, graphic art and examples of decorative applied art.
The Restoration Department specialises in the restoration of paintings and graphic art. A library is available for visitors.
The Museum of Foreign Art regularly organises exhibitions which allow visitors to look at the artistic processes of other countries. The museum also issues a series of publications about its collection and its exhibitions.
The Museum of Foreign Art allows visitors to learn about ancient cultures and about the art of Western Europe. Various events are staged throughout the year, and museum employees are always happy to organise tours for interested parties.

The Lower Reaches of the Daugava from Ancient Times to the 12th Century The Settlement of Riga in the 12th Century The Ancient Port of Riga
Halls 1-2

On display are the objects uncovered in archaeological excavations in Riga and its vicinity and representing artefacts made by ancient inhabitants of Latvia - flint tools (9th-8th millennia B.C.), adornments, arms, tools, coins a.o. antiquities of the Bronze and Iron Ages.
In the Late Iron Age the lower reaches of the Daugava were rather densely populated by a new ethnic group - the Livs. Owing to the favourable geographical position - a convenient natural port on the Riga River bank and at the trade crossroads - the settlement of Riga in the 12th century became a economic centre in the area of the lower reaches of the Daugava. One of the most interesting witnesses of the ancient history on show - the wreck of a ship found sunk in the ancient port.

Medieval Riga

Halls 3-4

In the 13th century Riga becomes not only the Bishop's residence (the Archbishop's residence since 1255), but also an important trade centre - the biggest Hanseatic town in Eastern Baltics with the corresponding economic and social structure. However, the interaction of the local peoples (ancient Latvians, Livs) and the western and eastern cultures gave rise to a special cultural environment. The exhibition presents original 13th-16th century objects, uncovered in excavations or procured from the rich collections of the Riga Town Council and the Blackheads Association. One of the most remarkable displays is the 2.4 m high wooden sculpture of St Christopher, which used to generate feelings of admiration and reverence in the hearts of the common townsfolk and travellers.

Riga under the Polish and Swedish Rule

Hall 5 The favourable strategic and geographical position of Riga caused fights of the neighbouring powers for the rule over the city. In 1582 Riga was compelled to capitulate to the Polish King Stephan Batory, and since 1621, for nearly one hundred years to come (till 1710), Riga belonged to the Kingdom of Sweden.
A rich display of unique materials relates the story of Riga's life at the time in various aspects - city administration, culture, crafts and trade. Exceptional evidence is born by Riga's weights and measures, relics and artefacts of the Riga artisans guilds, also the first printed panorama of Riga. Entwined by legends is the rider's boot which had belonged to Karl XII, King of Sweden.

The exhibition 'History of Latvian Navigation' tracks down the development of marine transport from the 10th century to the present day, from a single-masted sailing boat which used to carry cargo coastwise to modern motor ships which cross seas and oceans. The exhibition presents materials on the ports of Latvia - Riga, Ventspils, Liepâja a.o. - from their origin to our times when they are developing into significant European transit centres. Professional seamen and marine administration have always had a special role in the development of seafaring and representing their country abroad. The professions of the captain, helmsman or ship's engineer have always ranked as highly prestigious in a country which borders on the sea. On display are also materials on the building of sailing ships, naval schools, shipping companies and organizations.
The exhibition on the history of Latvian navigation comprises about 400 original objects: parts of ships and tackle, navigation instruments, seascapes and maps, tools for building sailing ships, textbooks and reports of naval students, teaching aids of naval schools, personal belongings of seamen, souvenirs, etc. Especially valuable are the numerous ship models, either mass-produced or hand-made by model masters.

The exhibition was opened in 1990, at the start of Latvia's national awakening. This is the Museum's first attempt to present Riga as the capital of the first independent state of Latvia.
More than 1000 historical materials, for decades collected and stored at the repositories, were put on display. They tell of the life of Riga and its population from the Proclamation of the Republic of Latvia in 1918 till 1940 when the country was occupied by the USSR. Among the objects on view are the furniture from the residence of Kârlis Ulmanis, President of the Republic of Latvia, memorial objects of statesmen and outstanding citizens, the Riga-manufactured world's smallest camera of the time MINOX a.o. local produce, photo originals, documents, currency of the Republic of Latvia, awards, original objects of art and many other exhibits.
Every year, for a week, the Museum puts out on show the photo of unique significance in the history of the State of Latvia - the large-format original photo by Vilis Rîdzenieks 'Proclamation of the Republic of Latvia on November 18, 1918'.
