Madona Local History and Art Museum

The Madona Museum of Local History and Art was founded in 1944. The museum gathers, preserves and exhibits materials about the history, culture and art of the town of Madona. In 1984, the former Birži estate granary built of fieldstone was restored and a spacious extension was built to accommodate art exhibition facilities (Skolas iela 10). Beside exhibitions, the museum displays a permanent exposition on the district's archaeology.
