Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Why not leave a comment to share your thoughts and impressions with others?

I like the ideas for redesigning the fountain, But the steps are to remain as is.

Very impressive and ambitious plan. I'm somewhat dubious about the picture window in the central pediment, however. What if some new pediment art were commissioned to act as a screen in front of the window?You're probably going to run into a good deal of resistance to the break in the staircase. My advice would be to leave it as is. It's interesting but probably not worth the fuss it's going to kick up.

Please don't degrade the external appearance of the building, to improve its interior functionality. Thus:1. Don't narrow the stairway, leading to the southern entrance. This spectacular gateway is one of the most beautiful artworks the Museum owns. Don't ruin it.2. Don't place a window at the top of building. It would severely clash with the Museum's Greek style.

la parte piu' bella e' senza dubbio la statua di rocky balboa, dove si vedono ancora gli addominali scolpiti. la scalinata e' pesante d'icchianata, soprattutto a stomaco pieno, ci vuole una scivola tipo quella per gli invalidi.Un saluto a mariano mascena, toto' glorioso, vincenzo rodia, ezio panero e gianni pettenati.

Gehry's model is an interesting way to re-imagine a classic structure overlooking our metropolis by the riverside. As the waters are to rise, is it wise to dig down to expand? Rather, think of the space outside as an 'open field fantasy' ... be open to (

The design is a beautiful design that works very well. The new gallery space flows together and integrates with the existing building through the vaulted corridor with ease. However, I do not like the window in the south east steps. I have visited the museum continually in the past 15 years, and while I believe the museum should have the flexibility to develop the building and site as it wishes, I feel the steps should remain untouched. I feel a good compromise would be to place windows or openings through the adjacent, unused foundations that flank the steps. This would allow light in from the south east, allow for an entrance off Eakins Oval, but would also keep the steps intact.

the museum is a great place to learn about different cultures and different people who painted and made different types of art

Grand plan on the whole.Still not convinced the "window" in the front steps is a good idea.I love the existing facade.

We like most of the plans for renovations, but we are not excited about changing the main exterior east museum steps. They shouldn't be changed.Also, there must be a space for music performances and films to replace the auditorium.

The front steps to the museum are sacred- they need to remain as is!

I'm really pleased with the Master Plan and appreciate all the care taken by the museum's staff to interpret and explain it through a new exhibit. Top-notch work, guys. Best of luck raising funds for this exciting and worthy project!
