Fairytale Museum in Džūkste


The Fairy-tale Museum of Džūkste is dedicated to the exceptional collector of Latvian fairy-tales A. Lerhis-Puškaitis and fairy-tales, which he recorded in the area of Džūkste. The museum exhibits are shaped around original fairy-tale themes authored by him to incite children’s imagination and thinkings and to build a system of the Latvian values.

At the museum, visitors are invited to listen to fairy-tales of Džūkste and to tell stories they have heard, to watch a puppet theatre and take part in it, as well as visit exhibitions and create fairy-tale characters. The younger visitors will find the Sprīdītis’ journey particularly exciting: to win the big bear, to go treasure hunting and make paintings of all adventures.
