Andrupene Farmstead

The museum is a complex of buildings constructed at the beginning of the 20th century, consisting of six buildings – the dwelling house, the barn, the cattle shed, the bathhouse, and the smithy. Here one can sit at the loom, and, by previous arrangement, the museum can organise trips, descending down the museum hill on sledges and in basins, or herbal tea tastings.

The museum is a member of the Latgale Gastronomic Heritage Network. Tastings of Latgale Gastronomic Heritage dishes can be organised by previous arrangement. The museum was built in 2000 and opened on 23 June of that year. It is owned by Andrupene Parish Council.

The tools, household objects, and furniture create a special rural atmosphere and feel. Here one can sit at the loom, and, by previous arrangement, the museum can organise trips, descending down the museum hill on sledges and in basins, or herbal tea tastings.

Typical household objects and tools have been collected and are exhibited in each building.

The museum is open to visitors and also holds parish events – Līgo festival, celebration of the coming-of-age, family day. The museum is visited by 3.5 thousand people each year.
