The Pauls Stradiņš Museum of the History of Medicine will be offering a seaside spa on Museum Night this year. Visitors will have access to several beauty treatments and health improvement services.
Visitors who are not afraid of the visual appearance of mud packs and the smell of sulphurous water will be able to try out mud and sulphurous water baths for their hands. Those who seek harmony between their brains and their emotions will be able to take part in “sand therapy,” with a nice surprise for each participant. The Ansis Rūtentāls Movement Theatre will encourage visitors to take part in five different exercises – aerobics, yoga, “oiling” of the body, free movement, and dance. Also present will be the long-standing friend of the museum that is the National Blood Donation Centre, and the Latvian Postal Service will be offering special stamps related to Museum Night. Two floors of the museum will be open – one offering exhibits related to ethno-medicine and the Middle Ages, and the other featuring the exhibition “The Brilliance and Destruction of Latvia’s Spas.”
The museum will be open to visitors from 7:00 PM until 1:00 AM.
