About The Exhibition
The Museum of Literature and Music offers its visitors a unique permanent exhibition – the first and largest of its kind, dedicated to the tradition of the Latvian Song Celebration – SongSpace, which has been created in honor of the 150th anniversary of the first Latvian Song Celebration.
The Latvian Museum of Writing and Music’s mission is to inspire a contemporary understanding of the national heritage of writing and music in Latvia, and to promote the idea of the museum as a space for new experiences and meaningful conversations – this exhibition, SongSpace, is another national treasure that will inspire people’s curiosity and desire to explore the tradition, as well as call for an intellectual and emotional need to maintain it. The exhibition is a platform that celebrates and educates about this long-established tradition, serving as a modern and innovative space for discussion, conversation and visioning of cultural heritage.
