MUSEUMS IN RIGA

Riga Porcelain Museum

   The only museum of porcelain in the Baltic countries is situated in Riga. The museum was opened not long ago, at the end of 2001.

    A vast collection of Riga porcelain (more than 6,000 exhibits) embraces the period from the beginning of the 19th century to this very day. The basis of the collection forms the porcelain from famous Kuznetzov's factory that was opened in Riga in 1814. Exhibitions of the museum include exquisite luxurious china sets as well as inexpensive crockery.


    One of the most outstanding exhibits is a two meter high vase, made to the seven-hundredth anniversary of Riga's foundation. There is a special hall, devoted to the porcelain from the Soviet time, where porcelain vases with communist images and porcelain statuettes of Lenin and Stalin are displayed.

    In the museum, visitors can watch the very creation process and even take part in it.
