We were super lucky and visited during the 2018 Baltic Fest when it was filled with groups from all over Latvia in costume who were signing, playing music and sharing cheese. It was fabulous. Without that it would still be very interesting as they have...More

We got to the museum using local buses. It’s a delightful place to spend a day in a lovely setting. There are 14 farms which show life was in different parts of the country. Very interesting

In the forest and on the lakeshore lies this beautiful museum that gives a glimpse of life in the old days. There are also many folklore events, and it is worthwhile to catch up and direct a visit to such a day

The information for the “Latvian Ethnographic Open-air Museum” in my guide-book looked very appealing, but it does not do it any justice. It’s on a beautiful woodland on the shores of Lake Jugla and includes over 118 homesteads, churches, windmills and other structures from across...More

This open air museum in a beautifully maintained wooded area is about half an hours drive from Riga. There are about 118 historical buildings from all four of Latvia’s provinces – Kurzeme, Vidzeme, Zemgale and Latgale,on display at the museum, originally constructed between the 17th...More

A day at the ethnographic open-air museum proved a very enjoyable break from the crowds in Riga, especially in the pleasant weather when we were there. The area is large enough to avoid the few tour groups that venture there, out of the city, and...More

Our group of 28 loved this place. Set amid a beautiful forest, you will find houses, barns, churches, a working forge and so much more. All the buildings are authentic and come from various parts of the region. Some date back to the 1800s and...More

The recreation of local houses from four different regions of Latvia. We visited in May and most of them were closed. The staff was rude and ignored any questions. Nice walk in the forest near the lake but you can't actually see an artisan practicing...More

This is a huge folk museum. So much to see. Probably best to go at the weekend when all the properties are open. It is worth getting the guide book because it is very good and you can’t take it all in in one visit....More

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.
