The museum's collection spans works of art from the mid-18th century until the present day and features also Russian art from the 16th century up to the early 20th century. Visitors to the museum will be able to view the new permanent exhibition “Latvian Art. 19th–20th Century” and there is also separate space foreseen for various temporary exhibitions. 

Following extensive renovation works, visitors will now also have access to the museum’s cupola which has never before been open to the public and besides there are two newly designed roof terraces which offer panoramic views of Riga.
