There were free expositions we visited. The first one is about the history of Jurmala, how people swam in the past, what they wore, etc. On the second floor you can find beautiful art objects that are mostly made of threads and fabric. Then you go back down and go right, where you find the art of a young artist.

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!!!

Do not think of this as a large dusty museum but rather somewhere to while away a pleasant hour in a friendly environment where exhibits are few but very interesting and really capture the essence of Jurmala and its evolution as a seaside resort through the ages. Apart from the static resort exhibits there are also changing exhibitions. Clean toilets, gift shop and free entry make it worth while putting aside some time to capture the essence of Jurmala's history.

This is a small, well-presented museum that tells the story of the Jurmala sanitorium industry in a succinct, yet interesting way. From the early days at the turn of the nineteenth century to the growing popularity when the railway network was connected in the 1870s to the halcyon days of the soviet era when thousands of high ranking party members and union officials from all over the USSR were rewarded for their loyalty with a free family vacation at this Mecca of spa resorts. All but two of the hundreds of such resorts are now well on the way to decay. The contrast between the beautiful luxurious hotells and private homes (the trip to Jurmala is worth it just to catch a glimpse of the jaw-dropping beauty of many of these mansions) and the many derelict formerly imposing premises is stark and fascinating. The word is that Russian speculators snapped up these buildings at bargain prices when sanitorium holidays were no longer government freebies - a wise move, given that land values have now gone through the roof here due to virtually no properties appearing for sale. Yes, the museum opens your eyes an intriguing tale that continues to develop

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 in Jurmala (with the discovery of beneficial mud bath, then the development of spa resort and beach resort).
It also retraces the evolution of habits between decades (
clothing, transport etc.). The first floor also displays panels on other resorts commonly used/developed in the former Soviet Union.

This is a corker with some really good exhibits showing how the beach hasn't changed that much even if the political background has over the years.
