From a neglected soviet time warehouse to a popular tourist attraction

The neglected Soviet era warehouse in Bauska was long used as a storehouse for unrestored vehicles belonging to the Riga Motor Museum. Nevertheless visitors were drawn to this opportunity to see vintage vehicles and feel a touch of history.

The warehouse was reconstructed, expanded, and developed into an exhibition hall n 2011. The exhibition was supplemented with professionally restored antique cars, but a few rusty gems can still be found among the displayed vehicles.

The Motor Museum Exhibition in Bauska has been acclaimed by tourist organisations. It is located near three of Zemgales region’s best known tourist attractions: Rundāle and Mežotne palace and Bauska Castle.
