On the Museum Night on May 14, about 700 visitors arrived in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court expresses gratitude for your interest! It was a pleasure to meet so many interested and joyous people.

Visitors could take a look into the courtroom and judges' deliberations room, take photos in the senator's chair, and learn about the court proceedings in the Senate.

At the Supreme Court Museum, visitors could learn about the history of the Latvian Senate and the Supreme Court, by inspecting the materials themselves, listening to the guide's narration, and via the interactive display, which contains information about the Latvian Senate, senators and the Palace of Justice.

Court’s guests also visited an exhibition dedicated to the centenary of Administrative Justice and the twentieth anniversary of the Administrative Procedure Law.

State President Egils Levits also visited the Supreme Court on Museum Night. He examined with interest the exhibition dedicated to Administrative Justice, which also shows his folders, which contain materials on the drafting of the Administrative Procedure Law. Egils Levits was the initiator and "driving force" of this law. The President also visited the Supreme Court Museum, and other visitors took the opportunity to talk and take photos with the President.

Museum Night is an international campaign that took place in Latvia for the 18th time. The Supreme Court participated in it for the first time, and it serves as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Constitution. In the beginnings of the Constitution, the Senate also performed the functions of the Constitutional Court.
