Jurmala Open Air Museum
Inside the museum a fisherman's court has been set up, and its nearly 2,000 exhibits portray the fishermen's work and life in Jūrmala in the 19th and 20th centuries.
In the permanent exhibition, take a look at the
- collection of anchors and fishing boats;
- wooden fishing motor vessels "March" and the fishing vessel "Undīne";
- the rope withering workshop, where you can try your hand at rope-making and net-patching.
Ragakāpa Nature Park
After viewing the museum head for a walk in the Ragakāpa Nature park.
This is a natural 800 m long and 100 m wide dune formed out of wind-activity. It is a quiet place for walking, where you can feel the fresh sea air, with viewing platforms and an eco-trail.
