Located on the right side of river „Jaša”, is „Jasmuiža” – a museum of Rainis. It is one of the exhibition places of Rainis and Aspāzija.

„Jasmuiža” is the only museum of Rainis in Latgale. It was founded in 1964, on August 16th. Compared to other museums dedicated to the poet, „Jasmuiža” is special because Rainis spent his summer and winter holidays here, while he was in high school and college. The estate was rented by his father from 1883 to 1891.

There is also a large exhibition of Latgalian ceramic arts available for viewing.

There are seasonal openings with ceramic oven kindling and annual poetry festivities.
