First Floor

Swing open the mahogany doors, stroll through our spectacular entry atrium, Huber Court, and you'll find what's essentially a new museum. All the kid-friendly exhibitions—Egyptian, Ancient, Non-Western—are completely re-imagined. The glass wing is not only redesigned, it's bigger by a third. The Museum Shop is in the same place, to your left upon entry, but now the cafe, Wisteria, is right next to the gift shop. Note on the map how the cafe now has direct access to Mary's Garden.

Second Floor

Ascending the grand staircase in Huber Court lands you in the Large Oval Gallery and presents three choices to continue—left, straight or right. Most people, being right-handed, turn right, and the upstairs galleries are largely set in a right-handed chronological circle from oldest to newest. Go straight and you'll see our expanded modern contemporary art galleries. Go left to take a chronological shortcut to some of the strongest works in our collection. Click image to enlarge.
