Rīga’s Latvian Railway History Museum, Uzvaras Boulevard 2A
Latvian Railway History Museum’s wheeled vehicle collection is at the foot of the Light Castle. The Latvian Railway History Museum houses monumental whole pieces and their many minute parts.
This year we invite you to gaze upon machine parts. We will shine light upon wagon’s and locomotive’s intriguing parts: springs, couplings, buffers, drawbars, wheels, whistles, steam kettle pipes and bushings. A play with light, sounds, and smoke will allow you to experience the railways characteristic rhythms and see the usually hidden steam kettle’s power.
You can learn each part’s definition and its function either from a museum specialist throughout the evening or by visiting www.railwaymuseum.lv.
