Ethnographic Museum

The Latvian Ethnographic Open-air Museum is one of the oldest and largest open-air museums in Europe. Now its territory covers 87.66 hectares of forest and it displays 118 historical buildings from all four of Latvia’s provinces – Kurzeme, Vidzeme, Zemgale and Latgale, dating from the 17th century to the beginning of 1930s. Museum is a perfect place for a leisurely stroll in the fresh air through traditional farmsteads and dwelling houses of farmers, craftsmen and fishermen to view everyday objects used during the time and see how people historically decorated their properties, as well as how people made a living. Here you can get acquainted with the farmsteads of the Russian Old Believers in Latgale, and the coastal fishing villages of the Liivs in Kurzeme as well as view historical churches of the various faiths present in Latvia. You can book a tour or explore museum on your own.
