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.

Although it was free entrance, I expected to see much more information. Also, there was a school party on the first floor so very noisy and echoy

We had't planned to visit the museum but the frosty weather encouraged us to warm up a bit and look what the exhibition can offer. We were expecting a couple of small, dusty, old-fashioned rooms with old photos and what we've found was surprisingly different!...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.
