A really well laid -out 'village'. Lots to see and good information boards on the buildings. There is a café/barbeque in the middle of the area which is not signposted nor on the map. It should be ! You can go into most buildings too.

There are other similar museums we have visited in locations ranging from Canada to Siberia. This one is relatively small (and very do-able in consequence) housing buildings from all over Latvia. There are demonstrators in costume at several of the properties who all gave excellent descriptions in English of what they were doing.
Part of the park is next to a lake which is now a wildlife reserve.
A very pleasant place to spend an afternoon.

A museum among the pine tree forests, very scenic and unique. A good experience of how the buildings looked like and the life of the people in the old Latvia days.

I have spent many wonderful hours in the Open Air Museum. It is a place for solitude, silence and reflections of the history of Latvia, tangible, in the homes, churches represented there. For a Grandma travelling alone, it is also important that it feels totally safe. Beautiful place; needs multiple visits.,

A sunshiney day gave us a chance to wander all over and see the lovely buildings and walk into Latvian history and experience a world never explored before.
