A little outside the city, the Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum is an excellent place to explore the culture of Latvia especially if you’re pressed for time. The open air museum prides itself in covering a wide array of local culture; the local life of the 18th and 19th century is well depicted by way of artifacts such as recreated homes, churches, windmills, etc.
The Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum makes for quite a picturesque setting so be sure to take a walk along the lake and take in some Latvian countryside.

Wonderful woodland museum. Many beautiful wooden buildings saved and relocated here to a beautiful setting. Sadly we only had about a hour but on a nice day bring a picnic and take your time.
The Ethnological museum offers a wide range of historical buildings that were typical in the different regions of Latvia. The mainly wooden houses are placed in a beautiful forest inviting the visitors to stroll around. The cafe and restaurant offer traditional food and the chance to relax from the various impressions. Don't miss a view on the adjacent lake with its peaceful atmosphere. I definitely recommend to visit the museum!
I simply loved this medieval village. Everything is so well built that you have the impression of going back in time. I spent here a couple of hours wondering around,trying to imagine what life could look like in the old days. It is a nice experience also for the children
Must visit if you have a spare day in Riga. It has to be one of the coolest museum I have been to so far! The open air museum is very well curated, quite authentic and feels like a time travel. The hikes are quite lovely and all the houses and churches are original pieces that were transported to the museum. The caretakers wear traditional clothes which reminds of you of some theme parks without the merchandise and the rubbish. (The entrance fee is really cheap!)
Wonderful place to visit even for locals. Must visit if you have free time. + local restaurant is a super must if you want to take full taste of Latvia. Orienteering map also available.
