The improvements made in the building also mean that the objects will be able to be handled in a safer and better way.

The Museum park

The glazing in the ground floor arches will open up the museum’s closed façade toward the park. The café’s new location in the building and its glorious summer terrace will make it a meeting place for the entire city district.
