In the charming northern Latvian town of Limbaži, in addition to the other local landmarks and attractions, it is recommended to visit the Old Town Hall (Vecais Rātsnams), where is the Silver Museum, featuring works by the famous Latvian silver-smith Oļegs Auzers.

It is not only possible to view the silver art pieces displayed at the museum, but also try first hand at making your own piece of silver art or jewelry.

The museum also tells about the use of silver in medicine. Here you can also try silver water, get acquainted with the workshop and learn the basics of soldering silver.

The museum features various silver jewelry pieces, decorative objects made of silver, as well as larger silver art pieces, including the unique ''Nākotnes Pils 3001'' (Future Castle 3001), made out of 30 kg of silver.

Auzers’ silver art-pieces have been given as national gifts to such persons as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Pope Benedict XVI, U.S. President George Bush and many others.
