Bauska Motor Museum
The neglected Soviet era warehuse in Bauska was long used as a storehouse for unrestored vehicles belonging to the Riga Motor Museum. But visitors to the area were nevertheless drawn to this opportunity to see vintage vehicles and feel a touch of history.
The warehouse was recostructed, expanded, and developed into an exhibition hall in 2011. The exhibition was supplemented with professionalluy restored antique cars, but a few rusty gems can still be found among the displayed vehicles. For those not interested in a car`s every detail, the exhibition includes a restored artisan`s workshop and interior of an early 20th century nadowner`s house.
The new Motor Museum Exhibition in Bauska has been acclaimed by tourist organisations. It is located near three of Zemgale region`s best known tourist attractions: Rundāle Palace, Bauskas Castle and Mežotne Palace.
