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

I'm not sure if even the locals aware of this museum in a newly restored building. It is very centrally located (on one of the sidestreets of Jomas iela, 2 minutes away from Majori train station and tourist information).
