Following a major renovation which lasted a decade, the National Gallery added 11,000 sq m to the existing 9,800, more than doubling the space. The museum gained 2,230 sq m additional exhibition space for permanent collections and temporary exhibitions, but also storage space, an amphitheater, space for educational programs, a suitable museum store, as well as a restaurant and a cafe, and is now open to the public.
