The Rainis and Aspazija House at Baznīcas Street 30 is a unique monument to historical construction from the 19th century in the centre of Rīga. The two-story floor at the side of the street, the backyard house and the small interior courtyard are a cultural and historical monument. The house contains memories about the visible and public life of the poets after they returned from 14 years of exile in Switzerland. They quickly found themselves at the centre of cultural and political life in Latvia.
Visitors can tour the memorial rooms and library of the poets. There is a hall in a separate building with changeable exhibitions. The apartment was restored and furnished on the basis of photographs, documentary films, memories and the diaries of the poets. Original objects came from the collection of the Literature and Music Museum.
One of the dominant rooms is the personal library that is open to all interested parties and researchers. There are 6,067 books in 14 languages, as well as 2,900 various periodicals.
