Welcome!

Founded in 1974 in an old munitions plant, the Torpedo Factory Art Center is home to the largest number of publicly accessible working artist studios in the U.S. With three floors of working artists’ studios to explore, the Torpedo Factory Art Center seeks to foster connections between artists and the public that ignite the creative spirit.

EatsPlace Cafe & Marketplace, located on the 1st floor, specializes in the best local food from Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. Stop in for a glass of wine, a famous bronut, or other tasty treat from the menu.

The Torpedo Factory Art Center is also home to the Alexandria Archaeology Museum, located on the 3rd floor, and the The Art League Gallery and School on the 1st and 2nd.
