Only a few original Rothko works but, considering their cost, this is fairly amazing. Great history electronic displays. Pleasant stopping place

The museum itself is made according to all modern museum concepts - virtualisation, visual terminals, etc. And they have some original Rotko drawings and paintings.

One of the MOST VISIT place in Daugavpils. 3 floors of exhibition so it will take couple of hours to go trough everything. Staff was friendly and polite. It is a place where i would like to return.
