Museum Educational Programmes
We invite you to spend a day in a pleasant company by studying the history of the palace, enjoying exhibitions dedicated to art and nature topics, going on relaxing walks in the palace park. By making advance arrangements, the palace restaurant “Liepaleja” creates a special offer for groups of more than 10 people.
After going on a tour around the palace, we offer playing sports games or other activities in the park.
After lunch, use the opportunity to go on a calm walk around the palace park and the surrounding area, while listening to bird songs and wind rustling in trees. A hundred-years-old lime tree alley circles along the edge of the palace park — back in the day, you could take the alley down to the nearby Vecmokas Manor; unfortunately, only ruins remain from the old manor.
To get to know each other and the palace better, you will have an opportunity to co-operate in a creatively strategic task — to put together a photograph puzzle in order to find the depicted element. Or perhaps you will rather want to find which buildings no longer stand in the modern day estate, using old map?
Tasting Herbal InfusionsOn a daily basis, we consume various drinks, but not all of that is good for your health. We often forget about an amazing alternative offered by the nature itself — herbal infusions.
During the tasting, you will have a chance to try various herbal teas collected in the palace garden and the surrounding territory. As you try infusions of ground-elder roots, nettle, lady’s mantle, birch leaf, or other infusions, you will also learn about their healing qualities. You will have an opportunity to taste and try to guess also various delicious medicinal syrups.
Tasting is available only with a guide and must be booked in advance.
Cycling TourismThe summer is the time when everybody is trying to be closer to nature and to fully enjoy it. How to achieve it? One of the options — going on a cycling trip!
Fresh air, nature and plenty of positive emotions are guaranteed! Starting on June, the Jaunmokas Palace offers a bicycle rental for small trips. To better enjoy the trip, 2 cycling routes have been created from Jaunmokas to Vecmokas and Tukums, additionally offering a guide service and picnic baskets filled with treats from the restaurant “Liepaleja”.
If, during the preparations for the Big Day, you cannot decide between romance and tasteful luxury, the Jaunmokas Palace will be the right choice — here, both of these aspects are just as inseparable as you two are.
The wedding event will start with the ringing of a bell, which for more than a hundred years now has been announcing all the important events at the palace. Its clear sound will vibrate through the space of eternity of your love.
The palace has its very own happiness coin. If you manage to get it, the young couple are recognised compatible and the married life will be full of happiness and harmony… this according to the old scriptures of the palace. The Jaunmokas Palace museum awaits the newlyweds with some other very special, mystical challenges.On the backdrop of the special magic of this day, The Sign Centre, the only one on the face of the Earth, will unveil the story of the young couple’s aura.
In one of the halls of the palace, the most beautiful wedding tables can be set, where the guests can call out “Bitter” (a traditional toast, called out by guests, suggesting that their drinks are bitter, and it means that the newlyweds must start kissing to make the drinks sweeter — translator’s note) or the young couple can dance their first waltz. Can you imagine a venue that is more suitable for celebrating this day than the vast, ascetically sophisticated Column Hall of the Jaunmokas Palace? Even its fine cast-iron supports inconspicuously stand for strong foundations of the new life together.
The first wedding night… How many times have you dreamt of it? After the fairy tale wedding, to wake up in a romantic idyll in one of the hotel rooms — a genuine enjoyment not only for the newlyweds.
We also offer:
- a wedding ceremony in the palace or palace park
- setting tables in palace halls and salons for up to 60 people
- decorating premises
- a wedding night accommodation in a special newlywed room
- courtyard decoration with torches
- a light fountain in the palace pond
Making Paper from PolyporesThe tree fungus or polypores is a small nature’s paper plant, in which wood is used. This material can be used to make unique paper, dishes, and interesting souvenirs.
During the programme, you will learn how to make paper from a polypore and you will also learn the technique of obtaining various hues and textures. Everybody will have a chance to make a unique art work or a greeting card for somebody special.
Programme with a guide only.
