Jurmala Open Air Museum

Jūrmala Open Air Museum was founded in 1970 and opened its doors to visitors in 1979. 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. These buildings were transferred to the museum from various fishermen’s villages in Jūrmala.
