From bonnets to helmets and beyond, anything you can wear on your head has its rightful place in Riga's unique World of Hat Museum.
It took one intricately woman headdress, purchased in a Thai market, to lay the foundations of this huge hat collection in Riga!
What you see now at The World of Hat Museum is the result of over 12 years of global travels... and not all of it was safe, so say the founders.
Browse over 400 hats from all around the world, from traditional headdresses to hats, shawls, bonnets or headbands. Some are as valuable as ancient jewels and each comes with its own intriguing story.
Hats off to this collection, it's truly one of a kind! Intrigued to learn more? Simply opt for the additional tour at the door.
