Description

The museum is located on the premises of the former Plātere elementary school built in 1868, in the former centre of Plātere civil parish. The first Latvian press magnate Antons Benjamiņš and composer Kārlis Kažociņš both used to work there as teachers. The name of the museum Bet tā bija! (But it was like that!) precisely describes the lives of those who lived in the parish during the times of different social systems. It is also possible to book a tour around the most remarkable places in Madliena. Booking for the visit is required.

The places for tents, a picnic area and a swimming area are available upon request.
