What can you receive together with your ticket or a castle in your pocket
Jāņa iela 17, Ventspils

By buying a ticket for visiting the Livonian Order Castle, visitors receive not only a chance to see the museum exhibits and the temporary exhibitions, but also several small additions prepared by specialists of Ventspils Museum to make the castle visit staying in memory and also in the pocket!

Even in a hotel sometimes it is not easy to find what you are looking for, let alone inside the 13th century walls; therefore, navigation sheets have been created in Latvian and English, where the castle floors and titles of exhibitions are displayed schematically For the visitors, who want to obtain additional information about the history of the castle, the Livonian Order Castle booklet of the same size is available, containing texts and visual materials about the history and exhibition of the castle both in Latvian and English.

Whereas families with kids can receive at the ticket office a small booklet The cricket travels around Ventspils Castle (in Latvian, English and Russian). In this booklet, the travel of the cricket Kristapiņš around the ancient walls is described and different small tasks can be found, which can be completed together by the whole family. On top of that, each visitor receives a coloured sticker with the castle logo, - white and blue for those who want to get to know the castle and all the temporary exhibitions, and yellow and blue for those who are interested in the exhibition hall on the 4th floor.

All these small gifts make a half of A4 page – an entire castle will fit in a proper pocket!

Alongside the main exhibition, three significant exhibitions are currently displayed at the Livonian Order Castle – until 6 February, the castle galleries on all three floors have on display the solo exhibition of paintings White Night (Baltā nakts) by the artist Sarmīte Caune.The unique exhibition Cabinets of Rarities. Passion in Europe in the 16th-21st Century (Retumu kabineti. Kaislība Eiropā 16.gs.-21.gs.) is integrated into the castle's 2nd floor exhibits., whereas the exhibition hall of the Livonian Order Castle has on display the extensive exhibition particularly beloved by residents of Ventspils – Vasarnīcu Street (Vasarnīcu iela) – with stories of families and buildings about the resort town of the late 19th - early 20th century – Ventspils.
