Well, because my husband and I are mad(!), we went to the museum in February, during -8 weather, snow and ice! :) We were the only ones there! Main pathways were still well gritted and plowed. The snow gave the museum buildings a Christmasy feel...More

A really well designed and interesting place to go. Getting there by bus was easy. It was well described. I'm going to go again

Went with a group of parents and kids - lots of fun and a good walk. Pretty, interesting, and not too expensive at 4.00 Euros per family.

Buildings have been transported from the four regions of Latvia to show how people lived and survived many years ago. As it was winter, few buildings were open but you are able to wander around acres of the most beautiful woodland and along the lake...More

In the summer this would be a fantastic place to visit but mid-week in December most of it is closed, locked, barricaded and the shutters are over the windows. However we did walk around some of the areas and there are information boards for most...More

We caught a bus from the old city, it was an experience in itself,we were told the wrong spot to get off, but that wasnt a problem as we just walked back. So many different structures to see and we just loved our time here.

Gret location just outside the city and easily accessible by taxi. Lovely way to spend a day or afternoon and learn about Latvian history. Food in the restaurant wasn't great.

We visited on a weekday at the end of October, so only two buildings were open. It was still a pleasant place to wander around and easy to get to on public transport.

No - but there is a cafe bar at the entrance who might help if you ask them. Alternatively you could leave them at Riga railway station as they assuredly do have left luggage.
