  • Small outdoor museum. Good place to have a 20 minute break and stretch out legs. Although it might be hard to walk on the logs, especially if it is raining. Worth a visit if you are in that area. But....  more

  • Nice location, even in the rain it's worth exploring. Educational and historical, if I remember correctly entrance was between €4-€6 per adult. Well worth a trip if you're in the area or interested in Latvian history.
  • Modern museum, attached to 8-9th century lake castle remains and reconstruction of fortified settlement. Very atmospheric and informative. Best to visit in good weather.
