Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum, Riga: 7 reviews and 31 photos
This is a vast museum set in acres of countryside. There are lots of fascinatining wooden buildings which illustrate how life used to be in Riga. We happily spent the whole day there wandering in and out of the various churches, farms, country houses, windmills etc. There is also a little fishing village. You can view local crafts and ways of life being carried out by the craftsmen. Everything feels like you are stepping back in time.
While you are there you can also sample some of the local food and drink.
