"A Day in Open Air"

The Ethnographic Open-Air Museum, founded in 1924, is located in a vast pine forest on the shore of Lake Jugla, spreading over more than 100 hectares (250 acres) of territory. Being the biggest museum in Latvia and one of the oldest open-air museums in Europe it has a rich collection of more than 90 historical structures. There are authentic Latvian dwellings, peasant houses, churches and windmills - gathered from all over the country to represent life in Latvia between the 16th and 19th centuries. 18 craftsmen (bee-keepers, weavers, potters and others) work there during the summer, creating beautiful handicrafts and souvenirs made of natural materials. These can be purchased at both museums and Riga city craft fairs. Summer folk and organ music festivals have also become regular. This is a good place for a day out with the whole family.
