The Latvian Ethnographic Museum (Latvijas Etnogrāfiskais brīvdabas muzejs in Latvian) is an open-air museum located on the banks of the Jugla lake, a few km east of Riga. The museum was set up at the beginning of the 20th century and contains 118 historical buildings from all four of Latvia’s provinces – Kurzeme, Vidzeme, Zemgale and Latgale, all originally built in Latvia. In some of the buildings museum staff in traditional clothes perform daily activities of Latvians of the past centuries. The simplest way to reach the museum is by car or taxi.
