The museum on the second floor of the Jūrkalnes parish folk house, which also serves as a place fo mentioning the victims of the Baltic Sea’s element, has been supplemented with antiquities found on the beach and retrieved from the seabed.

The second floor of the building is designed as a improvised sunken sailing vessel, so the visitors have the opportunity to view and experience the underwater cultural heritage while emphasizing shipwrecks which are located on the banks of Jūrkalne.

The exhibit includes diving equipment and paraphernalia, photo and video materials from the seabed and underwater discoveries. Sounds and lights tear down the bridge between history and art.

The exhibition hall has been created as an environment like the bottom of the sea, that allows to “dive” and look into the “sunken wreckage”.
