Modern-looking museum, free entrance when we went, interesting exhibition on Jurmala's history, and contemporary Latvian art upstairs. A bit small exhibition, though. The staff was friendly, they opened us the museum shop. They speak very little English.

Centrally located just a few minutes walk from borh the train station and Jomas Street this museum is well worth a visit. Downstairs are exhibitions on history of Jurnala as a resort mirroring the changing times in Latvian history. There was also a small supplementary...More

Located very close to the main pedestrian street in Jurmala/Dzintari, Jurmala City Museum hosts an exhibition on the development of Jurmala Resort in the 20th century. Definitely worth a stop should you come to Jurmala. Free and not often visited, it is actually really well...More

This is a fun and interesting museum showing past times in Jurmala, and there are some opportunities for interesting photos too.

Spend an hour browsing what is was like when spas were fashionable. A/C and clean toilets so worth the time.

It's a rather small Museum, but I must say, VERY nice, a a lot of atention to detail. Show the pride in doing things right, and that class over-rules "fluff" in presenting a city as it was and is. Have a great lunch across the...More
