Sajūti jūru (Feel the sea)

The exhibition was originally made as a temporary exhibition at the Natural History Museum of Latvia from 1.12.2010 to 13.3.2011. The textboards, showcases, and interactive elements can now be borrowed by schools, nature centres or other places that wish to give their visitors an inspiring insight into the Baltic Sea.

From the exhibition you can learn about geology, plants, animals and people living in and by the Baltic Sea.

The interactive elements allow you to for example to
  • make your own sand dune
  • find natural treasures in the sand
  • handle different rocks
  • get a closer look with a microscope
  • listen to the stories of old fishermen
  • learn why some eggs don't roll out of the nest.
