After three years and $54 million, Seattle's Asian Art Museum finally reopens to the public on Feb. , 2020. The renovation and expansion of the historic Art Deco building in Volunteer Park improved critical system, expanded gallery and education spaces, and added a new park lobby that connects the museum to the surrounding park. The museum's layout is now thematic, rather than geographic or chronological - with sections like 'Worship' and 'Celebration', rather than galleries labeled 'China' or 'India'. The new collection installation hopes to reveals the complexity and diversity of the world’s largest continent.
