Arsenals Exhibition Hall of the Latvian National Museum of Art
The Arsenals Echibition Hall of the Latvian National Museum of Art at 1 Tornu Street is the largest exhibition hall in Riga. It is housed in a significant architectural monument – an early 19th century customs warehouse building or arsenal built in the late Russian Classicism style and adapted to suit the needs of a museum.
The collection of the Latvian National Museum of Art, housed at the Arsenals building, is comprised of works of art created by Latvian and Latvian-born artists during the period from late 20th century until the present day. The permanent exhibition is replaced by regular exhibitions from the holdings of the museum, revealing the evolution of Latvian visual arts from various viewpoints.
The Arsenals Exhibition Hall hosts extensive art exhibitions, international projects and various art and cultural events on a regular basis.
Visitors are offered specialist-guided tours and educational programs. A scientific document centre is available for further reference.
