Originally a World War I munitions plant, the Torpedo Factory now spawns arts rather than arms, with three stories containing 82 studios, six galleries—among them spaces dedicated to enameling, ceramics and photography—and two workshops, one devoted to fiberwork, the other to printmaking. Also on site is the Alexandria Archaeology Museum.
