  • One of the MOST VISIT place in Daugavpils. 3 floors of exhibition so it will take couple of hours to go trough everything. Staff was friendly and polite. It is a place where i would like to return.  more »
  • It was great pleasure to visit this art centre where beside works of Mark Rotko temporary exhibitions of modern artist are organised  more »
  • The place is very special, a renovated old arsenal. There are 6 original paintings. The other work consists of fairly good copies. There is also regional works by contemporary painters who work in the atmosphere of Rothko. Not everything is equally strong. The documentary introductions are well made. What makes this visit extra worth is the location of the total expired arsenal complex. This was also a concentration camp in WW2 where Russian prisoners of war were killed. The State of the buildings and the colors on it give much added value and also bring some of the intentions of Rothko.

  • An absolute gem where many would not expect it. A great introduction into the life and work of Mark Rothko with a strong focus on his roots in what is now Daugavpils/Latvia. Super nice staff and great presentation of all art work. The hotel rooms in the Rothko Residences are also highly recommended - clean, stylish and very affordable.
  • Go in small group and take one of fantastic tour guides. Whole story makes me love art again. Feels like entrance should cost as twice as much, than actually are.
  • Great learning experience of Mark Rothko's biography. Information is provided in varios formats - captions, videos, video projections. There are reproductions as well as original paintings in the museum. The second floor is dedicated to modern art and collection there is being changed often. This is a must-see place in Daugavpils.
  • Beautiful building. Lots of exhibition space. Located in the fortress, which is something to see.
  • Very nice
