THE MUSEUM’S MISSION IS TO INSPIRE A CONTEMPORARY UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATIONAL LITERARY AND MUSICAL HERITAGE AND TO PROMOTE A VIEW OF THE MUSEUM AS A SPACE FOR NEW EXPERIENCES AND MEANINGFUL CONVERSATIONS.
Professionalism. We are experienced professionals, constantly expanding our knowledge of museology and improving our skills in the fields of collection management, research, communication and education.
Responsibility. We create, store and research the collections of national museums with the greatest care and precision; we observe, evaluate and take an active interest in the creative process, and in contemporary literature and music events.
Creativity. In developing the content and form of our exhibitions, events, educational programmes and other forms of interaction between the museum and the public, we strive to present a creative and modern point of view. We place a high value on teamwork and see it as the foundation that enables the creation of quality creative exhibitions, events and educational programmes.
Openness. We are open to challenges and strive to unify the new and the old, the conservative and the contemporary. We listen to public opinion and consistently improve the museum’s exhibitions, events and educational programmes.
Intellect. We keep clearly in mind our role in interpreting Latvia’s cultural heritage for the modern public. We continue learning, and ensure the provision of quality content while respecting our various target audiences.
Modernity. Our exhibitions, events and educational programmes are thought through and developed based on current events in contemporary culture. We understand the lifestyles of our target audiences, and take advantage of the potential of the newest technologies and trends in communication.
Sense of mission. We realise that the work we do every day plays a significant role in the preservation and development of national identity and cultural heritage among the Latvian public, and in shaping the image of Latvia held abroad.
