The Jaunmokas Palace — a place, where time, nature, and music blend together.

The palace is managed by SIA “Jaunmoku pils”

SIA “Jaunmoku pils” is managing the object of cultural history — the Jaunmokas Manor estate. The estate consists of a 9.8 ha large park and 6 buildings from the original structures have been preserved: the palace or the masters’ quarters, the dairy shed or “the milk building”, a stable, a granary, a carpenter’s workshop and a blacksmith’s workshop. The buildings of the Jaunmokas Palace Manor along with the park have been included on the list of architectural monuments of national importance with the state protection No. 8548, but the painted tile stove as an art monument of national importance with the state protection No. 4449.

The Jaunmokas Palace is the home of a museum. The decision to create the Forest Museum was made during the palace restoration in 1974. In 2004, the museum received the first Museum State Accreditation, but in 2011, it was awarded again. The stocks of the museum include a historically developed set of scientifically relevant items, which portray the traditions of forest management in Latvia, as well as depict the events of the Jaunmokas Manor estate and linked environmental and cultural history processes and destinies of people.

Besides the main activities — management of the cultural history centre and ensuring the museum operations — SIA Jaunmoku pils offers hospitality services, along with premises for organising conferences, seminars, corporate and family events, by particularly specialising in a comprehensive offer for weddings; it also offers hotel and catering services. To ensure these services, a Guest Reception Unit was formed.
