The exhibition of works by the outstanding artist and thinker Nicholas Roerich (1874–1947) is located on the third floor of the museum. The tranquillity of this room helps viewers to delve into the Himalayan peaks created by the master with an amazingly clean tempera palette.
The Ancient Greek and Roman Art Chamber is situated on the third floor of the museum and introduces the visitors to Ancient Greek pottery, Ancient Greek and Roman coins as well as marble sculptures from the collection of the Latvian National Museum of Art.
On the fourth floor in the former safe room, which has been transformed into the Silverware Chamber, is a display of items from the museum’s precious metals collection, covering the period from the late 17th century until the early 20th century. The items were made in the Russian Empire, including the Baltics and Europe.
The Ancient Egypt Chamber is located in one of the three large safes of the former Riga stock exchange. The doors decorated in neo-Gothic style have retained their original form allowing us to visualise the time when it was an important and well-guarded room.
The project "Start with Art" contains eight short films that have been created by involving exhibition curators, art historians and various communities of foreigners living in Latvia. It all results in the interpretation of the museum's collection that combines cultural and academic knowledge.
