Rainis bought the summer house in Majori in the autumn of 1926, and the poets spent their summers working and relaxing there from 1927 until 1929.
The museum offers a look at restored rooms of the summer house and the upper floor of the garden house. The exhibition “Me and You” features the links between the poets and their most important works. The exhibition begins with the first meeting between the poets and ends with Rainis’ death. This represents the horizonal aspect of life and the vertical aspect of creativity. A man and a woman. Power and beauty, and above all of that – love.
The museum merges three wooden buildings that are typical of Jūrmala. One is devoted to exhibition halls where concerts, readings, exhibitions and conferences are regularly held so as to inform visitors about the cultural heritage of Rainis and Aspazija. Visitors can also learn about the work of contemprorary artists and writers.
