Short history

The beginnings of Literature and Music Museum (RMM) in Latvia should be linked to 1925 when teacher of sciences Jānis Greste founded – as he called it – Pedagogical Museum at Teachers Union.  In this museum, separate displays, traditionally known as corners of writers, were arranged to honour the most famous Latvian writers. During 87 years the museum has undergone several reorganisations and structural changes with tendency to grow and incorporate different collections: including those of literature, theatre and music. For about 50 years it was a large union of memorial houses devoted to a range of writers.  The latest reorganisation in 2009 has resulted in more simple and recognizable establishment – Literature and Music Museum.

RMM has its mission formulated as “to convince the modern people that interpretation of literature and music history is useful and profitable when trying to understand the contemporary reality”.

Within frame of this goal RMM is striving to develop and improve it enormous collection of original documents and objects covering history of literature, theatre, music and the related aspects of cinema, art, photo and sound and video records (altogether more than 800 000 items).

RMM is especially proud of the recognition given to its collection by UNESCO programme World Memory – Rainis and Aspazija Correspondence (collection of letters exchanged by two outstanding Latvian poets) was enlisted in the National Register of World Memory (2009). UNESCO Rainis_en

On September 12, 2012, Literature and Music Museum was awarded a UNESCO Identification Sign as recognition of Latvian Nation Memory of the World register nomination ‘Rainis and Aspazija Mutual Correspondence 1897-1919’.

Usually, the UNESCO Identification Sign is positioned at or within the building where the particular unit of documentary heritage is stored. In case of Rainis and Aspazija correspondence there are two identical signs as the letters themselves are stored in Literature and Music Museum, and interpretation and actualization of the poets’ heritage is performed by Rainis and Aspazija Museum (Society of Memorial Museums). That is why an identical Sign of Identification was placed in Rainis and Aspazija Memorial Cottage in Majori (the Jūrmala City).

RMM stores also letters written by poet Aleksandrs Pelēcis added to another nomination of the National Register of World Memory (2013) – ‘In Siberia written letters on birch bark’ – nine of which is part of RMM collection.
