Jurmala Open Air Museum

A 19th century fisherman’s farmstead has been created in the museum with old, characteristic buildings – the dwelling house, the cart-house with a barn, a net shed, a shed for curing fish, a bathhouse, and other buildings.

The museum also houses a collection of anchors and fishing boats, and also the rope making workshop - the largest collection of ropes in Latvia. The museum organises tours by prior arrangement, including tastings of smoked fish and Latvian beer.

One can try one’s hand at making ropes and patching nets. A special program for newlyweds is offered. The museum is situated in the territory of Ragakāpa Nature Park.
