Digital exhibition of the Jūrmala City Museum

Dd studio has created a digital exhibition of the Jūrmala City Museum. It reflects the development of the Jūrmala Resort from its first years to the present day. The digital exhibition is integrated into the permanent exhibition of the museum. It offers a rich visual material: historical photographs, documentary video and 3D animations. In order to create the exhibition, Dd studio carried out a thorough research work in the state archives to find and select the necessary materials.

The first part of the digital exhibition tells about the early years of seaside resorts, paying close attention to Jūrmala’s beaches and recreational facilities, as well as provides information about swimming culture and the world’s first seaside resorts. The second part introduces neighbourhoods of Jūrmala, its culture of entertainment and concerts, and characterizes vacationers of the early 20th century. The final part of the digital exhibition presents Jūrmala of the Soviet period and features information about the events organized in Jūrmala, its beach, vacationers, therapeutic cures, and Young Pioneer camps.
