Museum of Decorative Arts and Design

Interesting
Located in the former church of St George (adapted for temporary exhibitions), this museum displays its collections in two large rooms. The first (level 2) is dedicated to the early days of applied arts in Latvia (19C-20C). The second deals with design from 1960: applied arts here distinguished themselves from the outset by their utilitarianism, as typified in Janis Straupe'sSeat for a conflict situation .
