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.

The archaeological finds of Middle and Late Stone Age in Latvia come from the area of Lake Lubāns in the east of the Madona District. The museum shows various themed and art exhibitions on regular basis; the region's ethnographic items are on display in the summer period.
The visitors have an opportunity to use the museum's academic library. The museum offers guided tours in the town and the district. Local artists' paintings, pottery and applied arts items, as well as books, brochures and postcards are available for sale.
