It is a branch of the Latvian ethnographical open-air museum and features a typical farm of a coastal village where people used to be engaged both in fishing and farming. Old trees surround the domestic house with a reed roof thatched in the manner characteristic of this area. The house has a veranda with windows and ornamented door jams. Inside you can see old wooden furniture and different household items from previous generations.
Another building is an old two-room granary and also there is a small kitchen house, a bathhouse and a smithy. A pig shed with small windows has been turned into an exposition hall displaying various fishery and handicraft tools. In the museum you can also see an oak-tree boat that is more than 1000 years old. It was used for boating on the lake.
