Museum is located in Brīvības street 36 renovated Bank building in city center. The museum funds comprise almost 40 thousand objects reflecting the history of Ogre and the Ogre district.
Ogre is one of the few towns in Latvia that started its development as a health resort and rest area. The origin of Ogre dates back to 1861 when a railway line Riga – Dinaburga was opened. The picturesque vicinity of Ogre surrounded by forests, hills and rivers rapidly turned into a rest area popular with the wealthy from Riga. The new health resort was opened in 1962. Before World War I there were 300 summer homes in Ogre. In 1928 Ogre was granted the rights of a town. The architecture of the town mainly consisted of wooden summer cottages built in the 20 – 30-ies of the 20th century, many of them designed by famous Latvian architects.
