At the beginning of 1990-ties, the specialists of the museum in cooperation with professor Gunārs Pakalns prepared a small exhibition about the man from the same district Hieronymus Karl Friedrich von Munchausen in Dunte where Limbazi Folk Museum was situated. The exhibition became really popular. In 1999, the museum was taken over by Liepupe parish.
Unfortunately, the building was destroyed by the fire on March 1, 2001. After the fire, the parish of Liepupe opened a temporary exhibition at Liepupe parish house.
In 2004, the museum was taken over by new owners – LLC “Minhauzena pasaule” (“Munchausen’s World”). A new exhibition – “Travelling in time together with Munchausen”- was open in Liepupe parish house already on April 1, 2004. In autumn of the same year, a fundament for a new building of the Munchausen’s museum was built. The businessmen – Ivars Strautiņš and Atis Sausnītis – invested their work and funds to implement this project.
The opening ceremony of the new museum building took place on May 32, 2005. Thus, the museum celebrates its birthday every year on May 32 with a single candle and several cakes (as many cakes as the museum’s age!)
