The Mentzendorff's House
Riga
The Mentzendorff's House – a branch of the Riga Museum of History and Navigation – brings you in the cosy atmosphere of the 17 th –18 th cent. dwelling house. Having been opened since May 18, 1992, it is the only museum presenting social culture traditions of wealthy Rigans. Exposition is arranged in the house built in 1695 and up to 1939 it has been a dwelling house with storage rooms and a shop. The house has been renovated by Polish company “PKZ” and under the guidance of architect Pēteris Blūms. Magnificent and original wall and ceiling paintings (17 th –18 th cent.) are the basis of the exposition. A fine selection of interior objects from the Riga Museum of History and Navigation conforms to these colourful visions of the past. Visitors are welcome to visit a shop room, a kitchen with a unique mantel-chimney, a saloon, a dancing hall, a “Poet's room”, a family chapel, premises of the owner of the house, a “Young girl's room”. As well as, explore the vaults of the historical cellar, and enjoy exhibition up in the attic exhibition hall.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
