Union of Piebalga Museums Orisāre

On 14th June 2006 all three memorial writer’s museums of Vecpiebalga parish joined together to form a union named “Orisāre”. It is an ancient place-name of this region. Its origin comes from Finno-ugric languages which people have been settled here a long time ago. But the place-names Vecpiebalga and the Balga River come from Baltic tribes that are Latvian ancestors. So the union of museums immortalizes a part of our history.
Since 1st October 2009 also Emīls Dārziņš and Jānis Sudrabkalns museum “Jāņaskola” has been included in the union “Orisāre”.
In April 2010 the name of the union was changed according to the territorial reform of the country. From now it is called - The Union of Piebalga Museums “Orisāre”.
A structural unit of the union is also the tourism information centre of Vecpiebalga community which is situated in Taurene.
During the tourism season (15th May – 15th October) the museums are open every day (10.00 – 17.00) except Mondays and Tuesdays.
