Incredibly difficult to find.Finally stumbled on it in a small courtyard..There are two main exhibition rooms.These currently have an exhibition on animation.Their timeline showed nothing happening in that field between 1937 and 1966'Oh really!Then you go through a wardrobe door,a bit like Alice in Wonderland to find what looks like a junk room.They are exhibiting 35mm platter.Trouble is that it is impossible to stay in this room due to an acrid smell.To me it smelt like film cement.Probably from the platter.I was there about 15 minutes.Very much a wasted trip.

Riga is the birthplace of Sergei Eisenstein, so of course there is a Film Museum. It is very small, and at the moment only has space for temporary exhibitions. But the staff is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The exhibition that was showing when we visited was devoted to the Jewish documentarian Herz Frank, who was a major Soviet filmmaker, migrated to Israel, and is still active today in his 80s. It was a detailed exhibition with many clips, much information, and the opportunity to see quite extensive sections of films. It was a complete revelation for us and a highlight of our trip. Be aware that the museum entrance is a bit hard to find! Persist -- it's well worth it! And it only costs 1 Lat to visit.
