The Arsenāls Exhibition Hall of the Latvian National Museum of Art LNMA is housed in a significant architectural monument, an early 19th century customs warehouse building or arsenal built in the late Russian Classicism style; it has now been converted to suit the needs of a museum.
The building was originally designed by Johann Eduard de Witte. Later the design was expanded, adapting the suggestions of Julius Adolph Spazier 1790 and after 1870, in 1828, architects from Saint Petersburg, Alexander Nellinger 1789--1840 and Ivan Franzevich Lucchini 1784--1853, an architect representing the customs office, developed the final version; in 1832, the official unveiling of the building took place.
The building in which the Arsenāls Exhibition Hall is located was used as a warehouse for the most part of its existence. In the 1920s -- 1930s it served as storage space for military equipment. After World War II the building was used by the Soviet military as a commercial goods warehouse and as facilities for a military college. In the 1980s it was taken over by the Ministry of Culture and converted into an art museum. On 1 January 1989, after the transfer of the late 1900s collection from the National Museum building in Krišjāņa Valdemāra iela, the Arsenāls Museum of Art started its work here.
According to the Cabinet of Ministers Decree of 20 December 2000, the Latvian Association of Art Museums was abolished and the structures of the National Museum of Art and the Arsenāls Museum of Art were organized simultaneously. Merging the holdings of both institutions, a single museum of national significance the State Museum of Art was created. On 1 September 2005, the museum was given the name Latvian National Museum of Art; Arsenāls continues to function as an exhibition hall of the LNMA.

The National History Museum of Latvia
History of the Museum --
The National History Museum of Latvia, the largest repository of Latvian material culture, was founded in 1869 as the Museum of the Science Committee of the Riga Latvian Society. To enable a better understanding of its foundation and aims, it is necessary to become acquainted with the social setting of Riga more than a century ago.
Right up until the 1860s, Riga was a fortified bastion, with its infrastructural and economic development determined by military strategy. It was only following change in strategic considerations, and after dismantling the fortifications, that this ancient trading town developed into an industrial centre with a multi-national population. According to the census of 1867, of the 102 590 citizens 42.9 % were German, 25.1 % Russian and 23.6 % Latvian. Contemporary author Mat_ss Kaudz_te characterized his own national segment of the population as follows: Until the middle of the last century Latvians did not recognize themselves as such, but referred to themselves as none other as farmer, for this is how they were called by those who seemed to be, or were, the ones above them. And indeed, by occupation and status they were nothing else. Even if the appellation Latvian was employed, this was understood to mean farmer, because none imagined that farmer and Latvian were two separate concepts.
The Latvians who had gained prosperity in Riga learned the German language and often denied their ethnic roots. It was not easy to identify their compatriots in the city.
Conditions changed during the latter half of the 19th century following the repeal of discriminatory legislation against farmers. Increasing numbers of Latvians came to Riga and their lifestyles underwent profound changes. The development of a Latvian identity and a growth in its intelligentsia led to an enhanced level of national self-esteem, and Latvians found a need for a social organization to enable purposeful gathering and a venue for cultural recreation, exchange of information and furthering of knowledge.

Museum of Occupation, Riga Latvia
The Museum of Occupation is next to the Tourist Information Office in Riga with free admittance. It is depressing but a traveler would be negligent not to learn about a country's history. Poor Latvia underwent 51 years of occupation. First the Soviets, then Nazis, then Soviets once again. Inhuman conditions and brutal Siberian exile for entire families. It's no wonder the older people in the Baltics don't smile. They've been repressed for their entire lives.
It is estimated that over 6 million people died in the Russian gulags!
