Jurmala Open Air museum.

Anyone knows how do I get to the museum? It is quite far from the train station.

Thank you.

Rent a bike in Riga. Distance from the train station "Lielupe" to this museum (Jūrmalas Brīvdabas muzejs- in Latvian, address: Tīklu iela 1a) is about 4 km. There is a special bike path Rīga- Jūrmala (the total length 30 km, but distance to Open Air museum is about 20 km), so you can go to Jūrmala by bike and return by train, for example.

Hey slonichek,

In Your place, I would take a bike in Sixt rental near Riga Central train station (its 24/7 and 9eur for 24hours), take a train to Lielupe (nearest train station to this museum) for 1.15eur. Have 5km ride till museum on Thursday between 12pm-3pm (if period July 5th-August 28) because then there are Fish day activities with smoking the fish and tasting it.

Take care,

Anete

Oh.. smoked fish is my weak point. ;))) Thank you guys for such a detailed information, it is very helpful and interesting. We will definitely discuss bike renting. I already looked it up all the street fares and festivals in Riga and Jurmala.
