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 made with several interactive panels and useful information to understand how the resort complex evolved... More

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 street at the hotel there, it's got the best food in town!!!

You get to know a few interesting things about Jurmala; and all this for free. Nice thing to do on a rainy day for example.

Only one big room really, but a lot of interesting information. I liked the interactive computer displays with fotos from the old days.

A small museum needing less than an hour to see everything. Nicely designed and laid out. Some good exhibits, but glad it was free to get in. Has its City Cafe - but the coffee drinks (hot and cold) were on the feeble side. Not worth travelling from afar to see, but fine if it's nearby or on your way... More

We can learn the history of Jurmala resort. There were a lot of documents and photos of XX century beginning that tell interesting facts about this Baltic Riviera.
