For three years, the bronze front doors at the Worcester Art Museum’s Salisbury Street entrance have been locked due to lack of funds.
On Wednesday, the museum is opening those doors permanently.
For July and August, the museum is also waiving the $14 visitor entrance fee.
The aim is to focus attention on the Worcester museum, which draws 75,000 visitors a year and struggles in the shadow of Boston's institutions.
Recently installed director Matthias Waschek said it was the first part of his plan to revive the sleepy institution.
