Name is misleading... but very nice visit
Aug 2020
The name is somewhat misleading, as the "Mark Rothko Art Center" only contains five pieces of artwork from Rothko himself.

Nevertheless, my visit to this museum was worth it as I took the "full exhibitions" package for 10 EUR. This enabled me to see great work from Latvian artist Silva Linarte.

I don't quite know what you get to see with the basic ticket... but it might not be much as the whole visit of the full exhibitions took about 1h30.

The building itself, having been renovated not so long ago, is quite a beautiful site on its own.

Definitely worth a visit

More artwork from Rothko would be nice
Jul 2020 • Solo
I was surprised there were only a few paintings from Rothko himself. Would have wanted to see more of his production. However, a good place to visit if you’re in Daugavpils. I came here by foot, it takes about a half an hour from the center of Daugavpils.

Very interesting

If you are in the area, you have come presumably to visit this Art Centre. A private guided tour of the Centre was very interesting although there were not that many Rothko paintings. A number of other international and local artists were represented.

This place located in the old fort, I found it very charming. The art gallery was interesting. They had a restaurant in the complex but we didn’t go in.

Don’t Miss the Mark Rothko Art Centre
Oct 2019
My favorite stop in Daugavpils. I’m not an art connoisseur by any stretch but this was my #1 sight in Daugavpils. My dearest partner is not an art fan at all, but thoroughly enjoyed this museum and learned to appreciate the art of Mark Rothko and all of the art that he has inspired in the multiple galleries that make up this art center. The permanent part of the museum is dedicated to the favorite son, of Daugavpils, Markus Rothkowitz. It’s obvious that Latvia in general and Daugavpils particularly is very proud of his legacy. The rest of the galleries house exhibits that change regularly and show the growth of modern and abstract art. The museum facility is a modern and clean upgrade to a building in a fortress designed to withstand 19th century artillery. Very reasonable cost. Plan to spend at least 2 hours here. Don’t miss it.

Incredible look at a Latvian artist.

Although prolific in America, Rothko was born in daugavpils. This exhibition beautifully tracks the city, his life and his art as he moves from being the chemists secular Jewish son, to being a power house in his art sector. Don’t miss this place if you are at the fortress. Especially if it’s sunny. We found it to be staffed by very friendly humans.

A must if in Daugavpils

I loved the way this museum is made - it's easy to learn about separate periods of artist's life as they are divided into separate rooms. Worth the price.
