Vēveri Branch of the Latvian Open-Air Ethnographic Museum
Muzejā apskatāma senlatviešu lauku sēta un nesen atjaunotās Vēveru dzirnavas. Te ir tautas celtniecības paraugs raksturīgajā ainavā. Exhibits of weaver’s tools, home-made blankets and linen cloth are on display.
Visitors can also weave worsted wool into cloth on the loom. Typical Piebalga district carts, harnesses, ploughs, and harrows are exhibited in the cart-house. The complex of authentic farmers’ and craftsmen’s buildings, typical of the 19th century Piebalga rural landscape, is found in the vicinity of the Alauksta Lake.
Medicinal herbs and flowers grown in Piebalga can be seen in the front yard of "Lielvēveri". The recently restored Vēveri mill is also located in the territory.
A specially developed path of butterfly orchids leads to Slieķu Lake, half a kilometre away. This is one of the rare places in Latvia where natural, unaltered nature can be found.
