On the Museum Night that took place on May 13, more than 800 visitors took an unusual opportunity – to have a look into the Palace of Justice and learn about the work of the Supreme Court. Thank you for your great interest!

Visitors could have a look into the courtroom and in the senators' deliberations room, take a photo in the senator's chair, and learn about the judicial proceedings in the Senate. This occasion was made special by the presence of Senator Veronika Krūmiņa who had conversations with the visitors; many took the opportunity to take a photo with the Senator waring her judicial robe.

Visitors could familiarize themselves with the history of the historical Latvian Senate and the Supreme Court in the Supreme Court Museum, and to view the exhibition "The Senate about the Constitution" in the Court lobby.

This year, the Supreme Court offered even more places to view – guests could visit several meeting rooms and the office of the President of the Supreme Court, as well as to see portrait galleries of Honorary Judges, Senators and former Presidents of the Supreme Court, and the collection of souvenirs received from Latvian and foreign colleagues.

Visitors were invited to watch films about the Supreme Court, Senate’s legal resources and about former Supreme Court presidents. Schoolchildren and younger children could enjoy the animated films "Types of cases in court" and "Judge". It has to be recognized that the films were approved not only by children, but also by adults. This was the premiere of the films.

The Museum Night is an international event that took place in Latvia for the 19th time. And it was the second time that the Supreme Court participated in this event.
