  • 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.
  • Modern building, really nice, but not much of Rotko, poorly hosted exhibition. Bad lights and space isn't used properly
  • Nice and interesting museum with original paintings of Rothko presented
  • 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.
