    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.
