Closed due to reconstruction works 




ARSENĀLS Exhibition Hall of the Latvian National Museum of Art (LNMA) is one of the largest exhibition spaces in Riga. It is located in Vecrīga, Torņa iela 1, in an important listed building – a customs warehouse, or arsenal, built in the 1820s-30s in the style of late Russian Classicism and adapted to the function of the museum in the late 1980s.

 

Since the opening of ARSENĀLS Exhibition Hall in 1988, it has hosted major art and cultural events: solo exhibitions of Latvian and foreign artists, conceptual art exhibitions from the museum’s collection, international exhibition projects, performances, concerts and educational programmes. The total number of visitors over the years exceeds one million.

 

Until now, ARSENĀLS was also home to a significant part of the LNMA collection, representing the period from the 2nd half of the 20th century to nowadays. It included more than 28 000 items – paintings, works of graphic art, sculptures and objects. This part of the collection is already being transferred to the new Museum Storages Complex in Pulka iela 8, Riga, where the works of art will find their permanent home.
