Riga This Week - FREE RIGA CITY GUIDE made by locals since 1992

World of Hats Museum

Closed Mon, Tue.
Experience a trip around the world in five halls, filled with varieties of traditional headdresses. It took twelve years of traveling to gather these hats. Most of the exhibits are hand-made, many are literally taken off the head of locals. Helmets not only for soldiers, but also for tough Afghani brides, crowns of African shamans and kings, colourful headwear of kids from India, China and Pakistan and hundred more ethnic hats and stories of different cultures from all around the world. Every hat, every shawl, every bonnet or head band in the museum has got its story.
