With a renovation, renowned architect Renzo Piano brings all three of the Harvard Art Museums under the same roof for the first time.
Thousands of artworks, in storage off-site during the construction, are now heading back to Quincy Street.
Gallery space increased by 40 percent and study centers, a cafe, and a pyramid-shaped glass roof were added.
About 2,000 pieces will be on view, including some that Harvard has never publicly displayed before.
Conservators worked on The Hunger March mural, a fresco, which took a true feat of engineering to move.
The museum is due to open in November.
