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.

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.

Like many museums, this one also has free admission. There's a little history of beach culture (how the costumes and customs and health spas have changed over the years), and an interesting tribute to the poet Rainis.

This is small but interesting museum about five minutes from the train station and just off the main drag. It also happens to be free. It consists of one room showing a brief history of the Jurmala beach resort with colourful images and displays. There is a small gift and coffee shop attached.

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.

Centrally located just a few minutes walk from borh the train station and Jomas Street this museum is well worth a visit. Downstairs are exhibitions on history of Jurnala as a resort mirroring the changing times in Latvian history. There was also a small supplementary exhibition on the changing visits and holidays enjoyed by children over the years. Of most interest were the exhibits on the experiences of the young pioneers when Latvia was part of the USSR. Upstairs were exhibitions from various international artists, which are always interesting if not always to your taste. Though there was one particularly effective video installation from a local Latvian artist. Only dissapointment was that shop was not open.

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

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

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.
