"Museum of old farmhouses" Out Of Town Tip by lotharlerch

Out Of Town, Riga: 13 reviews and 36 photos


All three Baltic countries have excellent museums showing the old living and farming. There is in every country a central one and several regional/local ones. The Latvian and Lithuanian farmhouses museums can easily compete with the best examples of this kind in Europe. In the Latvian one which is only a few km from the centre of Riga in a forest ensembles from all Lavian regions are displayed in an environment where the traditional methods of farming and gardening are shown and even traditional crops which are no longer economically exploited. Allow at least half a day for it!
