Dairy Museum

The Milk Manor complex houses the only dairy museum in Latvia – a real museum about real milk for both big and small.

The museum was opened in 2007 and offers to remember, understand, feel and enjoy – what milk is, where it comes from, and how it is treated before it gets to our table. Everything about milk – from the cow’s teat to a glass bottle or carton!

The museum offers 250 exhibits that have come from different locations, collective farms, and given as presents by dairy farms and individuals.
