Krišjānis Barons moved to the flat in the building that was at Suvorov Street 3, as the street was known at that time. Barons moved there from a homestead in Vecmīlgrāvis. Barons spent the last years of life in the apartment together with his son, Kārlis, who was a professor at the University of Latvia and a founder of stomatology in Latvia.
Visitors will be intrigued by Barons’ room, where the distinguished folklorist spent the last four years of his life (1919˗1923). There is a copy of his Cabinet of Folksongs. The original cabinet contains handwritten notes that Barons took about Latvian folksongs.
Events, lectures and tours at the museum are aimed at popularising traditional culture and, particularly, the life and work of Krišjānis Barons.
