This two-story wooden summerhouse is where Aspazija spent the last ten years of her life. The renewed exhibition features Aspazija's large dining room and guest lounge with a richly decorated tiled stove, floral furniture and an antique radio, where you can hear Aspazija's voice, recorded at the end of the 1930ties. A narrow wooden staircase leads to Aspazija's study where several items of the writer's original furniture have been preserved.

The house, in which the Latvian poet Aspasia spent her life's final years, is a wooden architectural and historical monument of national importance. The house was built in 1903, and it attracts attention with its facade's diverse finishes. In 1996 Aspazija's house was opened to the public as the poet's memorial site and the city Museum's branch.
