Visit of the Ethnographic Museum of Riga. Ethnographic Open-Air Museum was founded in 1924. The project represents homesteads of Kurzeme, Zemgale, Vidzeme and Latgale – the 4 areas of Latvia. In 1928 the first building – a threshing-barn of the 18th century – was set up next to Jugla Lake. In 1932 the museum was opened to the public and 6 houses from Vidzeme and from Latgale served as the first exhibits. The collection of Latvian Ethnographic Open -Air Museum is made up of 140 000 items. At present 120 ancient buildings with more than 3000 household objects are on display in the area of 87 hectares. Almost all the sections of the population and ethnic groups and their culture are represented there. Definitely it is a unique opportunity to see Latvian life under another point of view.
