The Ventspils Museum is located in Livonian Order Castle of 13th century. It exhibits household articles of people from the Stone Age up to the 20th century. The oldest anthropological item found in the territory of Latvia is the 12,500-year-old axe from a reindeer horn. The exposition tells also about the culture of the inhabitants of Ventspils and the surrounding area – Couronians, Livonians and Latvians – in the 13th–19th centuries, with particular emphasis on the changes in women’s clothing. The museum building has been renovated and, likewise its expositions, guides through the development and reconstruction stages of the castle.
